    Lately I have found my self to really like taking pictures in the fog. The only bad part about it is that you have to wake up early to get the shots. These shots were taken over two different days. All in or around Vancouver.

    1. Port Mann Bridge (this shot is a bit of pchop trickery, the bridge was never this empty)

    3. Port Mann Bridge (shortly after taking this shot, I was asked to leave the bridge, seems I missed the sign saying no pedestrian traffic :) )

    4. Queen Elizabeth Park. The dome shaped building is the Bloedel Conservatory (botanical).

    Oooooo. Lovely photos here!

    Wow, I really like the sense of depth (as in deep down) in the third Port Mann Bridge pic. Wow. (I am surprised you got that far, anyway, good for you and us that you "missed" the "no-pedestrians" sign.

    I also really like the close-up on the roof of the conservatory and the composition of #6 with the closer tree being so clearly outlined and the farther trees so "pale".

    Aaaaand then there is the "diamond-studded" spider's web, of course, now that is QUITE something else!

    1, 5, and 6 are stunning IMO.

    1-the perspective leads the viewers eye sraight into the fog, where it needs to be.

    5-AMAZING texture! I wonder how it would have come out without the blown out sky in the corner.

    6-The tree just really pops out from the shadows. Real neat shot.

    2, 6 and 8 have a lot to offer. 2 for the colour (good choice), composition and way the lead lines take us into the mist, 6 for the sharp delicacy of the near tree compared with the softer distance, and 8, though a subject that's done a lot, done very well here.

    Regards, Tony

    These are all really good, esp the conservatory close-up and the tree silhouette.

    I love them. the first one though, leaves something to be yearned. I think it should be black and white (it isn't is it?) and the levels need to be changed. work with the channels, because I can tell from the photo that a good black and white conversion (not just a simple grayscale) will make a WORLD of difference. also, in PS or PS elements, find a new black spot, and that might help make the bridge POP more, right now it's just kinda....there.
