Fog by Jorn Holm-Pedersen

September 2020 - Fog

About the Image(s)

A couple of weeks ago when I walked along the coast sea fog rolled in. I could see the path where I walked but not much more. But I could hear seagulls, ducks, the beating waves, the wind and the birds above. Suddenly I heard voices from the sea and shortly a dinghy with three person was visible. I made my photograph and the dinghy disappeared.
Captured on Fujifilm X-E3, 35mm prime f/1,4, 1/1600 sec, f/8, ISO 200. Cropped.

I like your choice of b&w for this image especially with the contrast between the fog above and the heavy boulders in the foreground. I would suggest going over the water with a brush and settings of clarity, sharpness and contract all reduced to smooth it out and make the image more minimalist. You were lucky to capture the magic "3" in the boat, which sits on the third line. You might want to crop the image from the right with the leading line of rocks that starts above 2020, just a thought.   Posted: 09/09/2020 15:07:16

Great photo. Excellent use of a foreground element. I also like the mysterious nature of the photo due to the black and white conversion and the mood it portrays with the fog. I think the position of the boat in the frame and the negative space in front of it really adds to the image.   Posted: 09/11/2020 21:49:23

Jorn - I do like your image. It evokes mystery and isolation. I do think Trey has a good suggestion for minimalism.   Posted: 09/12/2020 05:40:58

I really like the yin yang feel of this image - competing and complementary forces. The rocks are strong and powerful with a lot of contrast and the top two-thirds are softer and serene feeling due to the fog and apparent soft focus. Like yin and yang there is a positive versus negative feeling when I look at the image as a whole. I don't think I would change a think. I like it a lot. Well done.   Posted: 09/16/2020 18:18:43

A superb image Jorn, as soon as I saw it. I fully understand and acknowledge the comments made by all the others, but, in my humble opinion, you have captured this image and presented perfectly. I would not touch a thing about it. Be proud of this just as you have presented it Jorn.   Posted: 09/20/2020 01:53:58

Beautiful image with a great sense of mood. Maybe softening the rock a touch?   Posted: 09/20/2020 10:59:05
