Lost in Fog


"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."
~ Andre Kertesz

Agus Haryono from Mataram, Indonesia

All great, the lighting, the reflection, the view..

klausz from Kustein, Austria

Normally I try to get a strong contrast and really black and really white color by processing my bw photos, cause this gives a bw photo the "special" character. you will often see only color photos, which are transformed in "gray-pictures", not more!
in this case and it is really amazing, this very processing in different shades of gray, gives this theme the special meaningfulness and "underlines" the title and mood in a perfect way!
... photography is such a never ending field am I´m looking forward to expend my horizon day by day!
fantastic photo!!!! 5*****

@klausz: you would not believe Klaus when I tell you - there is no processing in this image . I found out that foggy images are the best when leave them the way they are coming from camera !

DULCIE from Danville, CA, United States

Lost in the fog, but recaptured in the water. A beautiful scene !!

Rick from Toronto, Canada

Superb. The mood is exquisite and I love how you have framed this with the bicycle rider and empty bench adding so much to the atmospheric setting.

7 Sep 2011 11:56am

@Rick: did you have a heavy fog a few mornings ago ? I was delighted when saw it at 6 Am , and at 7 I was ready to go out to take some shots ;) Thanks Rick :)

Laurie from Prescott, United States

So beautiful and peaceful, Mariana. What a magical place! I would like to take this image with me in my mind today - to get me through the craziness of the work day. Thank you for this. Absolutely heavenly!

wonderful mood and light and reflections and details! how long did you wait for this cyclist to come along?!? :-))

7 Sep 2011 12:36pm

@franz: good question :) just a few people were in a park, and when I saw in distance this cyclist I was following him through this fog to come on empty place and catch him ;)

Denny Jump Photo from Easton, PA, United States

Avsolutely superb, Mariana! In every respect...the tone of B&W here is magnificent and the cyclist just popping through the trees is wonderful I quite agree with Stephen. The contrasts are absolutely beautiful as we see the conifer trees outlined up against the bright fog and the reflections in the water look like glass. My favorite part is teh bright leaves right in the center upper part of your frame as they reflect the sunlight....almost gioving this a feel of spribngtime with blossoms blooming. This is just a spectacular image Mariana - Love it ! All the best ;-)
