Challenge: Best of 2009 (Advanced Editing VII*)
Collection: 2010 Challenges
Camera: Nikon D300
Lens: Tokina AF 12-24mm f/4.0 AT-X Pro DX
Location: Derwentwater, Lake District.
Date: Sep 12, 2009
Aperture: f11
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/8
Galleries: Landscape, Black and White
Date Uploaded: Jan 16, 2010

Taken in September 2009 when I was in the English Lake District with 21.gif Ecce Signum and 21_F.gif Talj. A promising weather forecast got us all up at 5.00 am to find very heavy mist and fog engulfing the lake (Derwentwater). As the morning progressed the sun burned through and we had an idyllic morning of shooting.

Same shoot gave 21_F.gif Talj her blue ribbon in the Nine Challenge.

I hope this doesn't score below my average as it really is a personal favourite.

nice finish Sarah! I love the image, but I am a bit torn about the boat. One one hand it gives scale and depth to the scene, on the other hand, it is a bit too literal for this Zenic (:)) image. I probably would've cloned it out... Either way it's good!

I love foggy/misty black and whites. I am going to take one this year (even though landscapes are not my "thing") and frame it. This is inspirational!

I like the simpleness of this image. Sometimes, they're the best.

Intriguing minimalism, a very quiet image.

Lovely pic and liek th eboat in this as well. for complete abstract artistic type of pic i would love to have seen different comps on just the rock and poles. Could get some relly interesting comps and moods there 7

Nice. I enjoy these 'mist' shots and admire you ability to shoot them.

The boat looks like it could be a toy. Nice work.

Love the composition. This looks like a BearMusic style shot.

This is quite the illusion and really interesting! It says far more than the "pretty" shots that will undoubtedly grace the top ranking shots. I can only hope that others see the merit in this shot that I am seeing. :)

cool

The boat really adds a sense of scale, nice job. Would work well as a high key photo too (overexpose it a bit more).

like the high contrast in a low contrast scene

simple and mysterious, nice.

i'd like to see this shot without the boat... in this case would have seemed to be a shot with Kenna style... i like it however...

I like the minimalist approach in this pic. Very serene quality.
