Taken at the Shreveport GTG. Crop, levels, USM, resize, USM, save for web.

If anyone thinks I did a sepia toning on this look at the original.

The fog on the water, the sunrise lighting, and the trees and lake were all made by nature. Damn it was cold.

Here is the original shot.

Post Challenge:

Thanks for all the votes and comments. A couple of people have asked about the light spot in the upper left center. It is light coming through the trees on the far side of the lake. Basic editing wouldn't allow me to take it out.

I'd like to know who had it on their wishlist. Contact me.

The white part in upper middle left is light coming through the trees that are on the far side of the lake. Couldn't clone it out due to basic editing rules. Except for that light spot it is all trees in the background setting the darker tones.

Pretty scene and I like the peachy tones. Think I might have gone for a less half-and-half composition. And maybe bumped the contrast a tiny bit.

this is great, I like the reflections of the trees; great capture of the mist; the sepia works well here just wondering what those little white specks are there in the top of the pic

i would have cropped the lone tree on the left. its a great shot nevertheless

Enchanting, but somehow has the look of being shot through a window? I think the water line would look good right in the middle, contrast needs a bit of upping and that sloppy mark on the left side of the main clump of trees should go. Definitely.
