Beautiful shot!!! I love it!!
Would you mind if I were to use your picture as a background photo in one of my modeling sites.
I played with it and added a beautiful girl standing on the edge of the rocks.
I don't want to use it unless I get your permission for it. If you send me your email address I will send you what I created.
My email address is Dickstevens24@gmail.com

Thanks,
Dick

I don't log in here much, and I don't think my shots are good enough yet for posting, but this caught my eye. This is truly awesome. I love the fog!!

Whoa! Are you kidding? This could win in an elite international photography contest. It's absolutely stunning and breathtaking. The thing that's cool about this is that this is a sunrise scene that so many photographers would walk away from because of the fog and clouds -- but that is what makes it so outstanding. Congratulations! And now I'm going to join the throng of people in your favorites number :)

Out of curiosity, did you have a strobe hitting the ground in the lower left corner or is it a dodge and burn job? Nonetheless it's beautiful.

Beautiful. I wish there were more landscapes like this at DPC. Maybe I'm just not looking in the right places.

Nice atmosphere to this shot, the inclusion of the rock in the foreground really helps with the sense of depth to the scene.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Really beautiful.

Perhaps its my monitor but I'm seeing some target banding in the sky - I'm guessing this wasn't a RAW / 16 bit workflow?
