Default A long shot

The exposure that is :P

I took this just now.... I know there's no information in the sky, but there wasn't any. Just greyness. It was the fog that caught my eye and I tried to capture it using long exposure and low ISO.

3 exposures mashed together in Photoshop CS5 HDR Merge and topped off with some Topaz Adjust.

Any criticism is welcome !


Middle exposure
Nikon D300

I'm not really crazy about it. Whenever I've tried using HDR with fog pictures, it loses that foggy feel and the main point of the picture (at least in my opinion). Your HDR (like most of mine) end up looking like a not-very-good picture with more detail that it should have for a fog picture and not enough color/contrast for a regular, non-fog picture.

There isnt much about it I can say I like. The blue is too much as well as the cockeyed tilt of the picture. And for an HDR the sky is gone with lots of chromatic aberration. The one thing I do like is the clarity of the image. Particularly in the foreground I see ever leaf clearly defined.
