    I have an emotional attachment to this shot. I took it of my husband on a hike in Kauai. That being said, I want to know if you have a emotional reaction and what it might be. Any other C&C is always welcome!! Thanks!!

    So tell me, who was ahead? You or he? ;)

    I really like the image. There is an "X" in the image (the rough earth/sky boundary from upper left to lower right, and the second arm of the X starting at the lower left separating the foreground slope from the background end extending rightward), with your husband at the center of the X. His small size relative to the scene, but at the same time, in clear view, emphasizes the scale of your surroundings. The mist almost enveloping him gives a sense of mystery. Your use of the sepia takes away the usual vivid greens, and forces us to see the texture of the land. My only nit is that the image is too small on my screen. I'd like to savour it at a size of say, 36" x 24"!

    This is funny. I took a "similiar" silhouette shot of my husband in a rocky place as well. Minus the smoke obviously lol

    I didn't like it at first, because I couldn't find your husband! After 4 or 5 seconds, I found him and the image really took shape. Very nice!!

    I like it. I am not in love with it. Your husband just gets too lost in it. wish he were larger? more noticeable. I LOVE foggy images like that!

    Great shot, I would definitely get this printed and framed in a larger size.

    Nice Mish.. I think the B&W conversion can be improved a little bit? Not sure.

    Superb shot. All the lines lead straight to the figure standing on the rock. A pretty much perfect use of leading lines! I probably don't have as much of an emotional response to it as you - I just see it as a great photo with excellent composition - which is all I need out of a photo!

    He was way out in no mans land!! I never went out as far as he did on this ridge!! I figured we have a child and someone has to return safely. lol
    Wow, isn't it amazing that all those things came together in a unplanned shot!! Nature is just amazing!! I'll post a larger version for ya!! Thanks for the detailed comment!! I really appreciate it!

    He makes the shot in my mind. Otherwise you would just have mountains. I'll post another shot in color, so you can get a better idea of the area.

    I'll post a bigger picture and you can try to edited it!!

    Thanks!! I wish I could say that I eyed that shot up perfectly, but I was actually thinking, "OMG, get down from there!".

    Thank you everyone for your comments!!

    Nice. Is that a little dog to the left of him near his feet or just a feature of the landscape?
