Day 213 (31 July 2012) Morning Fog

I was treated to some fog covering my front door landscape; I’ve always like the way fog adds an air of mystery to any landscape ūüôā

When I look at this image, I’m not too fond of it. ¬†It doesn’t really grab my attention, speak to any feelings/emotions, or look ‘cool’. ¬†My next step is to look at some fog photos I think are great and see what they did. ¬†Have you shot a great fog photo or know what I can do to improve? ¬†Either editing, composition, camera settings, etc that should be changed? ¬†The biggest thing I did was to drop the clarity to near the far left on the slider (reducing detail), if that will help you provide some feed back.

One of the things I love about this community is the ability to receive honest critiques. ¬†And in this case I could use some! ¬†Not the “it’s fine, you are too hard on your self” stuff, but “this is why your image isn’t very good. . .” ¬†Yes, I do crave that kind of feed back, even though it’s not as fun to receive as the positive stuff. ¬†I can’t get better if I don’t fix my weaknesses!

Day 46 (15 Feb 2012) Morning Fog

As I was getting ready for work this morning, I looked out my front window and saw that there was a bit of fog in the woods.  I still had my 50mm 1.8 on from last night, so I thought I would try using a prime lens for once.

I opened up the aperture to try to blur the background, but wasn’t happy with the composition of the photo, so I cropped it to what you see here. ¬†I wanted it to show the mystery of the fog. ¬†Does it?
