Another foggy morning in Bemidji, Minnesota. I hope someone enjoys this as much as I do:

Great photo man... although i am wondering.. you were aiming to take this shot.. not sure why you cut the tree a little bit. It seems odd to me. It would look great in B&W too.

As others have said - ease off on the crop a bit, other wise not a bad image at all and I do like the conversion - how did you do it. I would also be curious to see how this image would look as a high contrast black and white. My 0.02¢ FWIW.

Cheers,

WesternGuy

My intention was to have the branches touching (no branch was cut off) the edges of the frame to represent the confining feel of that heavy fog. I'll keep working at it. Thank you for the responses.

So did you crop it on the PP or did you crop it SOOC?

If someone wants to take the time, my photos are alright to edit. It'd be easy to include the "breathing-room" and convert it to grayscale. I'll take a look at doing that as well once I get back to my work puter. Great ideas but I'm still set firm with MY artistic expression of this scene.

That is fine.. it is yours! But it leaves the viewer wondering is something was cut off.. which is not usually a positive thing. Why add any negativity when you don't have to? It takes just the tiniest bit...

two quickies... I do prefer your color treatment to B&W

Added some contrast to try and bring it out.. muddy with the fog otherwise..
