    Then a fly by later when the fog had lifted, with the first shot a bit of a shadow under the wing, second a bit more light since it was lifted more:

    Nice shots Wade. (I get a synthetic fog effect every time I take a lens out into the hot humid air from inside the air conditioned house).

    Thanks Gary, would have preferred having some sweet light instead, but you take what you can get.

    and Bill, I haven't been able to do a post correction for condensation yet! :wink: Images never seem to be sharp, always blurry! :biggrin:
     
  9. Nice images, love the fog and the monotone subtle colors, and it's gentle drop off into the top of the image.

    thanks Darrell, I took that guard rail shot because of the line and fall off like you mentioned. I was sitting in the truck waiting for the fog to get a touch thinner.
     
  11. Love the third one Wade!!

    Cheers

  12. Wade great shots. Thanks so much for posting your steps along the way. Very helpful. It is always interesting to work with fog shots. I have a shot of a deer I took in the heavy fog. I love the feel of the fog but it is neat to PP and make it all but go away!!!
     
  13. That is some "magic" you performed. Love the photos.
