Criticism would be welcome. I seldom encounter fog and I don't know how to process shots like this. They weren't processed much at all.
Both good. First one wins on simplicity, plus that tiny baby tree gives it a boost.

I really like the first one. The branches on the tree and (as David pointed out) the little tree make the shot for me.

Thanks for the comment, Denise.
Don, I too favor #1. I'm also not sure how you would approach any meaningful PP work on this image. The fog makes the shot and it is rendered very realistically. Any effort to enhance the trees would, I feel, ruin the mood that prevails.
So, after years of living in SF, I associate fog with monochrome. For my taste, these are too colorful. I sent you some suggestions.
Tom, thank you.
Richard, thanks, and thanks for going to the trouble of sending suggestions. They were good ones.
I would agree with the others, shot #1 is very nice, well executed and presented. I, personally like the cooler presentation in shot #1 than the warmer look of the second image. I too would experiment with rendering shot 1 in B&W, see if you like it. Also, if you have the time, might I suggest post processing shot 1 in reverse or as an inverted B&W image. It might provoke a completely different reaction from viewers. Just a suggestion.
Bottom line...very nice work.
Thanks, Gato. I appreciate the suggestions.
Like Richard, I would like to see a BW conversion to compare.
