Okay... It's an illusion! My brother is actually on land paddling half a canoe. It's the same one as this:

//www.dpchallenge.com/image.php?IMAGE_ID=155758

Only the nose is in the water, as well as me with the camera. These are the times I wish my camera was better at shotting in low light settings. HOWEVER, this MAY be the last time I ever use the stinkin Olympus for a challenge... Yay!

After challenge:

It looks like my old Olympus went out with a bang! :-)
Anywho, for those who asked the fog is created through a fog machine. The hot spray from the machine is led through a home made foam box with ice in it, two holes in each end. This chills the fog and makes it thicker and more natural looking. I used the same box and ice for my 'dreams' entry, I just had to pull it out of the freezer. :-)

The king of the fog machine! I really like this shot. I'm not sure I would say there's a strong connection to the challenge topic, but it works. Very moody, very spooky. The lighting and the pose are perfect. I think it would have been even better to have some water with reflections at the bottom of the pic.

Joey is that you? A little more light on the guys face may have set it off more. But you probably already knew that didn't you? LOL

I like the concept and the smoke of course.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/31/2005 10:03:14 PM
Beautifully moody. I like the softness and the colour tones. I would have prefered the man to face away from the camera to make a more enigmatic composition perhaps. Lovely work.

07/30/2005 05:14:48 PM
looks like it was done on a stage (that's not a bad thing) as you've caught the fog just right for color/mood balance. One of my favorites this challenge

07/27/2005 12:13:15 AM
What a beauty!!!
How did you get the smoke to look like that?
One comment regarding the challenge - something in the boat looks like rusted metal more then wood. But I guess it's wood if it's in this challenge, isn't it?

  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/25/2005 10:10:24 PM
am impressed...

I am going to give this a 10...but i am also going to point out a serious mistake....

"This should have ben shot with a button down shirt...the T-shirt destroys the perspective sadly....but otherwise a 10 on all other points.

Nice job....you have a ribbon here....i have no doubt

07/25/2005 04:35:03 PM
A bit creepy, which is a good thing. The fog and shadows are it's strengths.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/25/2005 02:43:16 PM
very good atmospheric shot - perhaps for me TOO unreal!. Admire technique but I don't like it , almost like a film stage set up. Still 8

Very cool. I love the foggy/misty quality. The lighting on the brim of his hat is a nice touch. Very interesting and imaginative. Good contrast between the warm and cool tones. The sky is excellent. Thanks for getting me out of the wooden planks.
