Photo Contest: Fog

PhotographyPosted by Staaan

Fog is simply caused by the suspension of water droplets or ice crystals in the air. Although this phenomenon has affected human activities in various ways such as shipping and travel, it remains one of the most beautiful sights to behold.

This photo contest is designed for you to appreciate this great work of nature by capturing beautiful moments of fog in your preferred landscape. Choose your best vantage point, take your best shots, and post them here with a description to explain where this photo was taken.

To get some inspiration, have a look at this contest on Pxleyes from 11 years ago:

I am rather taken with this strong image. I love the fact that you have strong tonal values and that the focal anchor is the gate where we can visually rest. The framing of the overhanging tree branches further pulls our eye in and gives delight. Your exposure settings are very excellent with capturing foreground and fog in the distance. The image is sharp and well-composed and balanced. I know you would like some constructive criticism....I have nothing to add. You need to do three things to this image. Sign it, matte it and frame it....it is beautiful. Thank you.

Thanks, Olga, for your comment. Funny enough, your description of the picture makes it seem like I took it with all that deliberation, when I just walked by and thought: hey, nice scene, let me try and shoot it. Only thing is I often try to follow the rule of thirds.
