I think this image might have a stronger impact if the composition was stronger. With this, my eyes aren't sure where to rest.

It was a cold and freezing day, and Bobby the World Explorer was teetering on the brink of disaster. If he could make it to the end of this outcropping that hung above the one bajillion infinity foot drop into the cracks of doom, he would be able to recover the Secret Golden Monkey Statue and save the arctic tundra natives from a fate worse than death!

Slowly, oh so slowly, he advanced, the wind howling, threatening to knock him from this precarious perch. Step by step, inch by inch he went, and the hiding place of the statue grew ever closer.

In the middle, he was almost lost. For as he tried to navigate a broken area, a gust of wind caught his loose and flapping hood, and he almost went over. Almost. But he grabbed in desperation and caught onto a bent and jutting spike just in time, and hung there for a moment, staring down into the darkness. He pulled himself back up, and rested, breathing hard. That was close. Too close.

He moved on, and without further incident he finally reached his goal, the end of the outcrop, and lifted the lid of the chest that lay there, and gasped at the brilliance of the object that lie within. He lifted it out, and held it high, and...

"Bobby! Dinner! Come off that old pier before you hurt yourself!" Bobby scowled as his mother brought him out of his imagination and play, and jumped down the two feet to the snow-covered ground below ( a far cry from a bajillion infinity drop!) and went in to eat. As he went, he smiled. Tomorrow, he would be the hero of the Arctic People. Tomorrow!

I think the foreground is too overpowering.
03/13/2009 10:47:18 AM
This photo might benefit from a stronger composition.
03/13/2009 09:48:47 AM

Don't see any fog but I like the distressed pilings you've shown us, especially their texture.

the structure looks too busy, and gets lost in the b&w processing.
03/11/2009 11:54:08 AM
I don't see much fog here but a nice shot in any event
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 09:38:37 AM
Doesn't speak to me , I just find this dark and cluttered. Don't even understand what the title means.
03/11/2009 05:32:45 AM
what you want to say?
03/11/2009 12:43:05 AM
I like the old weathered look here.
