Color cast, levels, smudged fog at top, but biggest change was cloning out a pelican head on left. Hope that's not too drastic of a change. Also slightly dodged and burned, sharpened.

Thanks everyone for their nice comments. I spent some serious time in the cold to get this one. :)

This, along with "Fawn in Fog", were tied for my favorites of the challenge. Wonderful work, and what an eye (or just simple luck) in catching an absolutely priceless, hilarious moment.

Very nice. I love the fog, and the composition and the bird showing off really makes it great.

Nice shot. I like the negative space at the botttom and the misty look. I would have ran it through Neat Image to clean up the color noise.

This is a definate WOW. He certainly looks like a maestro. Love the colors and the negative space.

The colors, texture and subject are wonderful. This is a great picture. It does need to have less negative space on the bottom cropped, or, an equal amount of skyline above to add balance. Cropped just a few inches below the last bird would have made this a 10 in my opinion.

I'm clicking through here, voting on photos, and this totally stops me in my tracks. An absolutely stunning image, I can't take my eyes off it. It's like a gathering of angels or something. I'd give you a 12 if I could.

Love it. Great crop with the forward fog

Very original. If it had not been of all the water at the bottom I would have rated it even higer. Nothing wrong, just a bit too much to my taste.

A surrealistic dream. Beautiful.

Wow, didn't see this one till now. This is awesome. Going in my favorites. 10
I really like your crop and choice of leaving the misty empytness in the foreground, it's a gutsy move on this site and shows you have your own vision. I would be interested in seeing more photos from this shoot.

Nice use of negative space and great title.

Good capture. I'd be interested in seeing some of your other misty morning shots from that morning. Shooting in mist always adds a nice dynamic to photography. May have worked a little stronger in an 8x10 crop, the added space at the bottom doesn't add to the composition in my opinion. Thanks for sharing. -danny

Very cool picture! I really love the misty ocean feel of this picture. I can just see some inspirational writing at the bottom of this, matted and framed on a wall.

Wonderful mood photograph. I like the tone of it. Nice cropping. Very catchy title. I really like by placing the Pelicans and Gulls in the top third of the photo, the fog, mist, is reflected in the smooth water below. Very well done! If I could vote you would get a 10 from me!

Wow! It makes me feel dusty. Actually it is very mystical. It's like he is conjuring the mist.

I might have cropped a little more off the bottom, but this is really good. Nice work!

Very interesting composition. I like it very much. What a wonderful capture. =)

A different crop of this shot in a little better focus would have been perfect imo. As it is, it is still a great shot with a well thought out title.
