Camera was set on the ground, but tilted back by hand to get a better angle. Foggy night. I hate to admit it, but all camera settings were on Auto.

Cropped. Minor adjustments to contrast, brightness, usm. Removed a couple of distracting, tiny, bright spots. Just a couple of pixels each. Neat image. Resize. Save for web.

I'm surprised this one didn't score higher. The colors and mood are great- I gave it a 9.

Thanks for all the nice comments. Librodo; high praise, coming from you. Many thanks, although I do wish you were psychic...

My goal with this pic was to break 6.0. So close! Oh well. Next time. At least my placement percentage is improving. Just wait until I learn how to use PhotoShop...

Thanks again, everybody.

I'm sure people with bad monitors complained about it being too dark. Looks good to me!

Beautiful, haunting. Nice job with exposure, crop, etc. More then that, it has mood and ambiance.

creative use of light and an "everyday" object -- fog adds to the mood
