OK, I'm going through the Free Study submissions, purposefully finding those images I think are shot with a less conventional eye - this is one of those images! Thanks for offering something that isn't just DPC friendly eye-candy (though of course there's nothing wrong with eye-candy). I'll be picking one of these images for my Mu (most underrated) award:

Positives: This image has a real softness to it - the blanket of fog is quite cosseting. I like that we can just about discern some layers of depth at the tree line too. The composition is a lesson in itself - the foreground frame thing isn't that interesting but then I imagine it not there and the image becomes quite depleted.... imagine a more engaging foreground subject and again the image would feel diminished; I think you've got it so right here - the frame thing adds structure and a focal point without stealing the show. However, the real deal maker here is the colour and light - shot at a special time of day and boy was it worth it.

Critical stuff: Not too much but the slight off-focus of the frame thing bothers me just a little - not gone enough for us to appreciate that the eye is deliberately being drawn elsewhere but not sharp enough for us to settle on it. In many ways, that's just a side effect of the whole compositional choice - I've already mentioned how I like how the frame thing works by being there but unobtrusive....

Overall: A great image which has a well crafted feel.
