This is exciting. This is my first entry--and to have it as high as it is is amazing. Obviously not much to say regarding post-processing. I'll post an edited version later.

This is beautiful. Not sure beefed up colour/contrast would improve the feel of this. Sorry you're not longer a member or active, because your two viewable photos are excellent, and stand very well on their own.

Oh, great. You were just here! YOu went to the right spot to find Elk. And took exquisite advantage of the fog.

Beautiful, I love the mist and the subdued colors it gives. Nicely done!

Pretty interesting shot though for me there is too much foreground in the picture. A better cropping taking out half of the field below the elk and leaving the sky would have been better I think. I understand you couldn't do that for this challenge of course.

very good image, though i would have cropped some of the bottom--too much grass. good misty colors and background.

My pick to ribbon. Beatiful comp and effect with the fog. It's my dream to get a DSLR and take photos like this.

very nice job! love the foggy look to this, though i am afraid it prolly is not to popular! other sites i have haunted hated the washed out look to fog or rain, instead i love it, congrats on your ten from myself!

When you can post-process, the ONLY things I'd like to see are foreground crop and maybe clone the flower right in the middle. It's perfect as it is otherwise, imo. 10

Very nice....I wish I could photograph well in the fog

What a fantastic shot. I love how none of them are cut off in any way and are all in frame. And then to get the one to look at you and the others looking ahead is very cool.

I expect with some post processing this will be great!

Fabulous composure and the mist/fog is excellent to set the mood. Great shot!

More sky and less ground would perhaps have been a better composition
