Mystical for Certain Dark Vignette

Posted by john4jack (Corvallis, Oregon, United States) on 22 December 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

This is an experiment in the mood created by a vignette. Fog always is a bit mystical for me. If I apply a dark vignette, it tends to darken the mood and make it feel more somber. Tomorrow I will post this same photograph with a light vignette.

We will be gone to the Coast Dec. 22-24.

Nikon D700 1/160 second F/8.0 ISO 400 38 mm (35mm equiv.)

I love the mood this creates. It seems so perfect as it is, that I will be interested in seeing tomorrow's lighter version. Dare I ask if you considered straitening the horizon line a tad? :-)

@DULCIE: That's a hill that slopes from left to right.

Ambiance d'un film fantastique :)

Florence from Paris, France

It gives a nice mood to your misty landscape, a feel of sadness too, but it's a personal opinion. I look forward for the image you will post tomorrow.

The processing adds a strong flavor to the already fine shot. Of course I'm a fan of fog and you have some beautiful examples.

This is nice, but I think yesterday's composition with the foreground interest was better.

a little eerie but superb, loved it

23 Dec 2010 4:09am

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Beautifully-shaped canopy that you've captured of this tree. The numerous amount of trees helps illustrate the depth of this composition as they fade into the thick fog.
