Mystical for Certain Light Vignette

Posted by
john4jack (Corvallis, Oregon, United States) on 23 December 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

This is yesterday's photograph with a light vignette. It seems to me to create a more luminous sense of mystery. FYI - the horizon is not tilted; the hill slopes from left to right.

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

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

Yep, completely different feel, and because I'm in a jolly mood, I'll vote for this one. Now when my post-christmas credit card bill comes in, it will probably be yesterdays one that sums my mood up!

I like the contrast of the two. Really after flicking back and forth like 8 times.. I don't have a favorite because each one exemplifies its own mood and is quite effective at doing so. Your experiment paid off.

Jack, thanks for visiting me...I've been neglecting my posting, and mean to catch up with you. I like all three of the fog shots, but my favorite is yesterday's dark vignette. Hard to pick. Have fun at the coast.
