Default A new day with fog-covered sunrise...

Today turned out to be a rather strange day.

Having an overnight-guest who had to catch an early train to Oslo, and I had to drive him to the station - I was forced to get up at 05:30 this morning. Suited me fine, because when I looked out the window it was a clear night (cold as well, frost on the windshield) and it looked like a nice day coming up. I would catch that sunrise today...

Afte the train-station I drove straight out to a strech of familiary coastline. On the way out there was this sudden fog coming up, rolling in from the sea. Dissapointed of missing yet another sunrise I kept on going and decided to take som fog-snaps instead.

Now, I wonder if those shots are too dark? I myself like the darkness and the tender colors in the little light there was, but maybe i should have lightened them a bit?

What do you think?


#1




#2



#3



The motives are not breathtaking because of the lack of details (fog), but the gentle colors in the dim light should compensate that a little....?

I think #1 and 2 are beautiful #3 might use a bit of brightening at least it looks like it on my monitor. I love some of the hdrs on the forums and this could be a candidate for it but sometimes the darkness and shadows create a mysterious look and feel and that is what your first photo has created to me. I can imagine a ship coming into view any second. You used the conditions and elements available and made some very nice photos!!

Not breathtaking? I was actually thinking I wish I could take breathtaking photographs like that before I made it down to your last comment .

The exposures did not have enough details and the light was too dim for any good HDR's with these shots. I tried it and it didn't work. And as you said, I wanted to keep the low-lit mystery and feel of dakness and the gentle colors created during such conditions. An HDR-rendering would have erradicated all that and would have made it look dismal.

The second remark is really touching, Bob. Thank you! I didn't think I made photos, just snaps with my p&s-gear.

Appreciate your view and comments.

Thank you vvcarpio for your kind words. Well, I have mother nature on my side with beautiful motives, and the light is just great now in the autumm. Another thing with the seasons is, I dont have to get up at 04:00-hours to catch a sunrise. Those 3 where cought at a civil 08:00 o'clock!

Nice picture, Bynx. This is exactly how it could have been...


- but it didn't happen! I hung around for some time, and the wall of fog kept on increasing and rising higher and higher. After a while there was no sun at all and I had to retreat to my car because of the icy-cold and very humid wind out there on the skerries! If you look careful in #2 there is some ice along the edge of the water already. Brrrrr...


Thank you for taking your time to comment and your edit! Really appreciate that.
