Night fog
Posted By: roentarre, 06-01-2008, 04:22 AM

This was the heavy fog immersed in the tungstun light at night.

I found it quite something

Fog really adds atmosphere to an image.
Some of the best night photos I have seen combine fog, street lights and reflections off wet pavement.
Sounds like Melbourne really.

Thanks Garth. The surrounding was rather distracting and cluttering. So the composition is a little off.

Very cool shot James; I like the first one with the branch and the lights.

Thanks for sharing.

Very cool. Is that the actual color? I think I'd be a little freaked if I went outside and everything was bright orange. The first one is my favorite.

I like them both too James. They both have qualities that hold my attention and draw me in. That is what it is all about. Well seen and captured I say!

Lovely/dreamy colours, James. Fantastic.

I've seen the place in your second picture before somewhere... I think it was on one of your blogs or website. You drop by there often?

i really like the effect, although i think the leaves are a better subject than the store. almost a kind of UFO feel. great work on those new Nokton photos as well!

it's great you're using the FA31 for these photos, gives me more inspiration! that lens hasn't really come off my camera since i got it!

I agree, very nice effect. The combination of the unusual colors fog and lights works well for these shots.

I like them both but the first is a real winner as it demonstrates your marvellous eye, James.

And we're getting plenty of opportunities to practise fog shots here at the moment. Day after day after day... I should get the Pentax out myself, but cold and damp... yuk. Thanks for posting these, I don't feel so bad about being lazy now! (plus my images would've been nowhere near as good).
