Not sure how this shot will do in the voting. It's a little out of the box for me but I like it anyway and hope it does well. This shot was taken in the early morning shortly after the sun popped over the tree horizon. The mist on the lake was an added bonus that didn't last to long. I wanted to take out the log on the left but wasn't sure if that was a major item so I left it in. I also used a 2x converter with the 70-200 for an effective focal length of 400mm.

Nice feel to this - Maybe would have taken out the rocks for a slightly stronger image as they take the focus away for the canoe

Oh, this is so wonderful!!! I love fog shots. I just wish that large rock under his right oar wasn't there.
