I am so sorry this was DQ'd. It is an exceptional photo. Such great texture. Such great leading lines. I would love to see more work like this from you. It shows you have a real talent. I gave it a 10 in the voting FWIW.

Crazy odds of that huh?

congratulations on this fine shot. I love the fog winding through. It really looks like you burned in a little in the foreground, i hope it's natural, I really love this shot. nice job either way.

06/20/2007 03:33:41 PM
Hey, helluva first submission! This was one of the high scores I gave out. As the resident landscape photographer of DPC and a former colleague of Ansel Adams, I gotta say the expressiveness of the mid-tones here very much reminds me of his work. Well done!

06/20/2007 03:30:43 PM

4th on your first entry?! awesome. Cognrats!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/20/2007 12:25:37 PM
Congrats on the almost-ribbon on your first entry! I suffered from the same start (although it was 100 years ago when it was a lot easier to do well here).

edit: congrats on your RIBBON :) You can almost only go down from here but we hope you stick around.

Welcome to the site. Look forward to seeing more of your work. It's obvious that you have crazy skills to share with us.

I know it's already been said but I have to say it again: Great name!

woah. Very nice. better than nice. Great B&W/sepia use. Hard to do that with trees/nature. Most excellent work!

wow ... great capture ... slightly dark on my monitor in the shadows

I like this image...the tones and mist are very inviting; the simple tree repetition draws one into the photograph...8

Cool photo, seems very mysterious.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/17/2007 04:21:15 PM
Lovely. Wonderful textures. Nice leading line formed by the mist. It's a little dark on my calibrated monitor ... you may lose points for that, or fail to attract voters who just vote the thumbs. But top marks from me! Best in show.

Very beautiful. The S-curve through the picture is just amazing. Very well done...

Very visually pleasing to me - I love the mist line as it travels through.

BW doesn't work for me for this scene, I'm afraid. Would love to see the color version.
