About the Image(s)

This was shot as a 3 frame bracket, 35mm, f11, iso 200, 1/25, 1/100, 1/200. In processing I tried to preserve the mist and darkness while still maintaining shadow detail.

Very nice. Moody feeling. Sometimes I would add a bit of "haze" using the "dehaze" button but I really like it the way you did it. Nice color palette.
Great work.

A delightful glow and feeling of warmth emanating is skillfully coaxed from the mist in this noteworthy image!   Posted: 05/06/2020 09:51:15

Wonderfully moody and atmospheric image enhanced by your focus on the fore and mid-ground gold detailed rocks. The prominence of the mid-ground rock grounds the image for me but wonder if the transition from gold to dark rock base could be more gradual. I enjoy the glimpse into the foreground water. Well done Todd.   Posted: 05/14/2020 09:42:57

Very nice. I love the mist and the way the light hits the one rock cropping. Great job!   Posted: 05/16/2020 16:03:21

Hi, Todd;

This image reminded me of places along Hwy 1 on the N. California coast south of Carmel. Your post processing focused our attention to the strong shape and texture of the rocks in the midst of a foggy morning. I wonder whether darkening of the right upper corner of the image would make this image even stronger.   Posted: 05/17/2020 20:57:29

Hi Todd,
I love how you did the finishing touch. Two thumbs up. Misty background and gradual layers only to some parts. Partially blur the top of the midle rock and gradually increase sharpness and clarity towards some parts of the foreground. It's an awesome work to me. I am just wondering if there could be any supporting element to show the scale of the whole scene.
