Out of the Fog

Today is the Feast of the Epiphany which is often also called the Feast of Light. Thus it is just the right feast for photographers.

OTHER PEOPLE'S PHOTOGRAPHS - Often people wonder what your photograph would look like if you cropped it or converted it to B&W or did something else to it. If you have a Mac and have PS and LR in your dock, all you need to do is click on the photograph and drag and drop it to one of those icons. The photograph will open up in the application and you can find out for yourself what you want to know.

A road uninviting and dangerous! But it's beautiful! Adequate treatment gives it a strength and a beautiful tone!!

Self-Indulgence from Chicagoland, United States

You have a good perspective here. If you look down the road, the signs to the right and the left each lean outward a bit, somewhat gathering the middle of the image together and giving it direction. Fog.. is always wonderful to capture as well. Nice shadow and light.. a very moody image.

António Pires from Lisbon, Portugal

An appropriate image for the occasion.

6 Jan 2010 4:02pm

don from spokane, United States

I like the foggy look down the road and a distant car barely becoming visible. Fog does wonders for many pictures! I found it interesting to note that "corrections" people are doing some road maintenance.

MARIANA from Waterloo, Canada

Out of foggy 2009 :)) ( my interpretation ! ) Beautiful image , Jack !

LESLIE from norwich, United Kingdom

Great shot Jack.... ( have you downloaded ON ONE'S free download for Lightroom & PS.
The LR one is very good i can recommend it )

6 Jan 2010 5:17pm

@LESLIE: I have onOne's Plug-in Suite 5 installed in both LR and PS. I use it mostly in PS, primarily because I generally do some final work in PS, not to mention the fact that you can change the opacity and use blending modes in PS. You also can do everything as a Smart Object; if you use the various plug-ins straight out of LR, everything gets baked in.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Super atmosphere Jack helped a fair bit by the sepia toning.

Anna.C from LA ROCHELLE, France

great misty atmosphere ! be careful on the road Jack ;-)

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

Another nice fog shot, Jack.
I could not get that drag and drop to work with my laptop OS10.4 and PS2 but it did work on my desktop G4 OS 10.4 to iPhoto. It's an interesting thing to know, but I'm not sure how I feel knowing that anyone could take our photos from the site and alter them. I guess the only safety thing is that it would not be a very high res. copy.

7 Jan 2010 12:38am

@B. Thomas: There is a way to protect your stuff, but I don't know what it is.

Ajay from Pune, India

What a brilliant composition, Jack. It is the tone that makes all the difference... I guess.

7 Jan 2010 1:11am

Susan from Sausalito, United States

Yes. That works for me, drag and drop--we are altering the language. I like the tones of this...nice work.

MontereyJohn from Salinas, California, United States

Ha! Some of that famous Washington liquid sunshine :) Still a cool picture.

7 Jan 2010 2:43am

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

I like the perspective from which you captured this shot as the road angles off into the light, providing a lot of depth here.

7 Jan 2010 4:14am

SOUL AFLAME from The bosom of Mother Nature, United Kingdom

An excellent shot, Jack, with the vehicles emerging from the bank of fog. Hugely atmospheric

Just in the right place..Nice..

7 Jan 2010 6:56am

Bill Laing from Pacific Northwest, United States

This tone works really well with your fog images--seems to add more density to the fog, making it even more evocative. BTW, was there a corrections crew working the area that day?

7 Jan 2010 9:32am

Barbara from Florida, United States

Yesterday, I sat here viewing this and taking in the mood of the scene, but I did not comment. The dense fog had an effect on me.
The tone you used is superb for this. Great composition.
