Wow! my first blue. This was a lucky shot. I went to the lake to take a sunrise shot, made a wrong turn, ended up at a different park than I was intending to go to, and was amazed at how thick the mist coming off the water was. I took about 10-12 shots then left to find my originzl target location. When I got home and saw how the mist blended into the horizon, I knew I had a good shot. On top of that I love the expression "blue mist round my soul" I certainly feel that way sometimes. I wish I had thought of using blue toning as several comments suggested, I have just always use copper and didn't give it enough thought. In any event, thank you all so much for the kind comments and high scores. I doubted I would ever get a blue and now I can rest easier. Thank you!!!

Just gorgeous. I love the curving line, and that there is both a reflection, and an area that disappears into the unknown. A shame about the garbage cans.

I love this picture, however, I think you should have changed the hue, to make this a bit blueish, I think it would have been better. But that's just my opinion. So far, the best in this challenge.
