Fog... the phenomenon beloved by many photogaphers for its specific mood giving to the images. But sometimes it can destroy landscape, when sunshine cannot break through and there is grey and wet. Like this dawn, when I spent all the night waiting for any interesting view, only such a poor capture I took...

Hi Hneryk, that fog wasn't so ugly, you've found a beautiful view, with all that mist and fog and with a sad but beautiful mood.
evanrizo (456) 2007-07-01 12:41
Ugly fog? A wonderul image!!!
Hi Henryk, with this EXCELLENT photo it has an ugly fog and helps very much for the nice effect, the calm water gives nice reflections.
Very good work.
Davidh34 (838) 2007-07-01 12:43
Such are the frustrations of a photographer. Still, at least you show us this wonderful place to live, and in good detail considering the fog. As much as fog and mist can add to an image, the mist over the water impresses me most, some of which you've captured here. TFS

nie taka znowu paskudna ta mgla tu robi swietny klimat,podoba mi sie odbicie we wodzie,dobra ostrosc,pozdrawiam

merhaba dear henryk
wonderful atmosphere and composition.wonderful houses and reflections.well done my friend.
jackart (6702) 2007-07-01 13:03
Nie wkurzaj ludzi! Wstawia taki cacko i jeszcze sobie w tytule wpisze że mgła mu nie leży. Właśnie bardzo ciekawie wyszło, że takie ascetyczne. Przepiękne odbicie w wodzie dało piękną symetrię.
Od dłuższego czasu obiecuję sobie że wstanę wcześnie rano aby upolować taką mgłę, ale jakoś nie wystarcza mi silnej woli
Edyta_B (8) 2007-07-01 13:08
Hej Henryku :)
Spodziewa³e¶ siê wspania³ych widoków i... doczeka³e¶ siê! Wprawdzie inne by³y Twoje oczekiwania - czeka³e¶ na piêkne ¶wiat³o przebudzonego S³onka, które by wydoby³o urok fotografowanego miejsca, a tu powsta³a taka kurtyna z mg³y... Ale ta "paskudna mg³a" podkre¶li³a równie¿ urodê Doliny, stwarzaj±c na zdjêciu tajemniczy nastrój... Oprócz tego, czuje siê te¿ wrêcz ch³ód i wilgoæ tego miejsca - brr... ;). Bardzo ³adne s± równie¿ odbicia w spokojnym, g³adkim lustrze wody oraz kadr.
Nie taka paskudna jednak ta mg³a, bo dziêki niej (no i oczywi¶cie dziêki Tobie :) ) zdjêcie jest tajemnicze, nastrojowe i bardzo mi siê podoba :).
lasscor (7640) 2007-07-01 13:34
Lovely foggy landscape.
Nice peaceful atmosphere and mirror effect.
Fis2 (86283) 2007-07-01 13:37
Paskudna mg³a ale efekt super. Dobry kadr i kolorystyka a odbicie w wodzie to ju¿ okrasa zdjêcia ;-).
delic (6735) 2007-07-01 14:20
I like the reflection and the mystery accentuated by the fog. This is a pretty good picture given the conditions. Regards,
captainsgirl (3448) 2007-07-01 15:04
No no no, you've got it all wrong, this is far from ugly fog, i love the effect of the fog you got here...it gives mystery to this photo. The reflections in the pond the fog...beautiful..amazing photo. TFS
Dpbours (222) 2007-07-01 16:52
I don't think it's a poor capture at all! I can feel why you think so, when waiting all the time for the sun coming through the clouds but it doesn't happen. The reflections are nice and the fog over the water is adding to the atmosphere. Nice one!
toto (0) 2007-07-01 21:37
Belle photo d' un endroit superbe au bord de l' eau,qui a sa petite brume du matin. Jolie photo, bel angle de prise.Beaux reflets. Amitiés Thomas
Atousa (7131) 2007-07-01 23:10
But this ugly fog has created a special mood as if something mysterious is going to happen.Also the beautiful reflection has added to its mood.
John_F_Kennedy (42843) 2007-07-01 23:44
Superb composition and colours, excellent framing. I like the fog-covered lake. Well done.
vincz (19113) 2007-07-02 0:34
Too modest? :-) ... Despite the lack of sun light you got here something that is really so picturesque. It transmits such a special atmosphere, I personally like it a lot.
Calimero (572) 2007-07-02 0:47
l am not agree with you!
Because it is marvellous shot.
Fog adds great miystical moments to composition. It's cannot be called ''ugly fog'', It is better to call it ''Mystical Moments'' Reflection is also great.
Thank you for sharing,
siolaw (38284) 2007-07-02 2:49
I don't know why you underevaluate this shot! It has great atmosphere enhanced by the soft colors and reflections.... Good framing and compo with off centered house
Worth the waiting!
dkeus31 (27735) 2007-07-02 3:00
A nice image wwith a good ambiance created by the fog, even if it creates a white sky.
dudkov (270) 2007-07-02 5:17
Jak zobaczylem to foto to pomyslalem ze zle widze wlaczam...patrze....a tu Henryk sobie jaja robi!;)
Ale trza dac dwa punkty za takie poswiecenie maloefektowne!..bo jakby niebylo to jest to fenomen Henryka!!!
plimrn (21344) 2007-07-02 6:07
I know you like the stunning morning light but the excellent detail you captured through the soft fog and that amazing reflerction has its own charm. You should re-name the photo, "On little cat feet," a line from a poem by Carl Sandburg. Your title predisposed me to hate this very nice picture. HLJ, Pat
anes_lc (14968) 2007-07-02 6:09
i like the fog in this one,create a special atmosphere :)
feather (51130) 2007-07-02 8:05
Fog itself might be ugly but you have created a beautiful image despite it. The atmosphere has been captured well and the reflections in this mood are a wonderful addition to the scene. Off-centring the house in the frame wowrks well.
Ulishna (2268) 2007-07-02 11:23
Great fog's photo, Henryk!
Nice and soft. And very good reflection!
Stepan (27210) 2007-07-02 12:13
Poor capture !? Not so sure !!
There is mood here, and you composed that well. Great reflection/Gppd light management.
jaywalker (16101) 2007-07-02 13:33
Hi Henryk, A brilliant photo, the atmosphere is chilling, the reflection of the cabin is perfect & I mean perfect, like a mirror, you have captured the fog very well, the muted colours are excellent for the shot, TFS, kind regards Wilson.
TeresaT (10806) 2007-07-02 14:23
Hello my dear,
Wonderful composition with this lovely house very well postioned on the composition.
And of course the fog makes creates a perfect atmosphere.
Oh...and the reflections create an almost perfect symmetry...because there is nothing perfect...not even your photos...eheheh (but you are close)
sayan (2617) 2007-07-03 0:18
Wonderful foggy atmosphere captured by you. I like the reflections in the water too. Very nice capture indeed. Very moody too.
delkoo (68) 2007-07-03 0:55
because of the fog, your photo have a real mood, it is the mood that really grabs me,Rather spooky this image .
mphotographies (1976) 2007-07-03 1:13
What the 'ugly fog' has done, has created its dullness to an atmospheric trance into something beautiful, like an ugly dream that translates into something beautiful at the end. This is for keeps and I like it a lot!
rigoletto (34269) 2007-07-03 1:40
Maybe the fog destroyed the joy of the artist, but you know Mr. Bilor, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
As you mentioned, this fog adds a specific mood to the otherwise regular lake/forest compo. I like the ghasty atmosphere here. TFS,
Angshu (55914) 2007-07-03 4:32
Poor view...yeah sure! Yes we do miss the play of light, which you're the master, but what a mood you captured...calm, serene & beautiful. Lovely off-centre compo..also like the wet tiles of the roof, thanks to the fog.
AniolekIza (153) 2007-07-03 4:54
Ta mgla wcale nie taka zla, nadala temu miejscu specyficzny klimat ;)
Cretense (68691) 2007-07-03 7:01
I always like foggy landscapes, but this is a special one. It's not just that magic atmosphere that goes with the fog, but also a great composition and marvellous reflections! Great "split" of the frame in two. Congratulations!
syd1946 (18663) 2007-07-03 9:09
The view is beautiful,the reflection of the house is nice but all together under the fog is fantastic.Well exposured from the best point to enjoy this wonderful landscape!
pboehringer (770) 2007-07-03 11:19
Yeah Henryk, poor fellow! You were waiting all the time to get thispoor image that even already got a favorite. I guess that your interpretation is the wrong one. This fog is what makes this a good image and you should turn down you title. Be more positive. Call it "Wonderful Fog" and move on.
Didi (57256) 2007-07-03 11:25
I don't think so, but your fog picture is very nice, the lights give a good interest to your composition.
Scharan (14144) 2007-07-03 19:31
Que cenário encantador Henryk!
A neblina encheu de poesia este lugar; uma linda composição, cores e o reflexo na água está perfeito. Parabéns.
bakes888 (18499) 2007-07-04 1:02
The sacrifices of the photographer!! Never mind what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. And you still have the nice atmospheric photo to take home ;-). The strange thing is I see more and more quant old houses but with a satellite dish mounted on the side or roof. Nice capture and thanks for sharing.
Tue (27696) 2007-07-04 1:55
You captured a fantastic mood near this lake here. I find the fog very beautiful. The reflection in the calm water is also great. Composition is good, well done!
bostankorkulugu (42080) 2007-07-04 3:35
i would call this scene "moody" rather than ugly henryk... the composition is cool with the reflections, and with very little colour you achieved a good result i think... my compliments...
all the best
danos (87475) 2007-07-04 5:12
very nice this foggy landscape view with the house and its reflections on the water.Your capture create a peaceful atmosphere in this idyllic and romantic place.Excellent the management of the light and the contrast.Well done.
vbbreizh (2622) 2007-07-04 9:09
Lovely romantic and peaceful place. Good management of light and reflection.
Beautiful job !
anducina (8407) 2007-07-04 11:49
Poor capture ? Not at all, I like the silver tones and the foggy atmosphere of this scene. Great reflections.
maximage (15535) 2007-07-04 13:21
Image fantastique!! Une atmosphère incroyable et et techniquement une réussite.
papagolf21 (86746) 2007-07-05 0:42
Bonsoir, cher Henryk,
La brume possède un charme fou. Ici, vous avez su capturer la beauté d'un moment éphémère. Un cadrage très soigné, une photo de qualité.
salvator (19102) 2007-07-05 10:37
Hi Henryk my friend,
Wonderful wonderful composition. The fog, the reflections and colors are outright superb. Definitely a prize winner for me.
Best personal regards. SAlvator.
jhm (140054) 2007-07-06 6:07
What a lovely moment for this wonderful picture with a spectacular atmosphere, the misty care for a wonderful image together with the house and the reflection in the river.
My compliments Henryk. TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
nadine432 (1128) 2007-07-07 1:41
j'aime beaucoup la brume, joli cadrage
nicol_g (859) 2007-07-07 10:48
Witaj Henryku :)
Yes, looks grey and wet... and tranquil. Sometimes I like such atmosphere, sometimes I don't :) but I surely woulnd't miss the opportunity to take a 'foggy' picture, be it grey and ugly :) (I especially like foggy-forest images).
Well composed, nice symmetry.
Take care :)
pablominto (53744) 2007-07-07 10:55
Atmosphere is awesome!
Fog often also means no wind with great reflective qualities of the lake, like here...
Mutesd colours but that fits the moos well!
carper (96) 2007-07-08 0:47
lovely one my friend,
the atmosphere is well captured, the pov is good, and you made a very good quality job here, well done,
jmdaoudal (82) 2007-07-08 1:51
the soft athmosphere is great here, this is very well done for the tonalities, quite a musical composition :-))
Well done this is wet, sharp, and with very precise colors.
I like it very much
pady (4800) 2007-07-08 3:11
Despite the fog, it's a wonderful composition.
It's always strange atmosphere and here you captured it with great reflection.
berek (39521) 2007-07-08 5:11
I like this mystic view with reflection. well framed and light control . have a nice Sunday.
elmec (12210) 2007-07-08 9:56
Eeeee tam paskudna od razu! A mnie siê bardzo ten klimacik podoba! Tajemniczy, nie zas³oniêty, lecz intrygujacy niedopowiedzeniem....
lemonice (640) 2007-07-08 11:44
Piękne miejsce, jeszcze piękniej ujętę. Odbicia w wodzie robią swoje i ta mgła rozmyta. Super
cam (9041) 2007-07-08 17:35
Frustrating when you are waiting for a sunrise,but what you got instead is rarer and much better,as for the mood created.
Good compo. with a perfect reflexion.
At least you did not come back empty handed.
Have a good week
Cricri (107274) 2007-07-09 8:45
Une scéne qui fait un peu penser a une journée froide...bon cadrage, reflets sous une douce lumiére, belle réalisation
jlynx (12645) 2007-07-10 2:28
Temat nieco odbiegaj±cy od dotychczasowych, kreowanych przez Ciebie w Twoim portfolio. Niemniej fantastyczny to obraz, pe³en lepkiej tajemniczo¶ci i niesamowitego klimatu jak z opowie¶ci o Sherlock'u Holmes'ie. Pomimo mg³y obraz bardzo klarowny, odbicia w spokojnej wodzie jak z lustra - zdjêcie klasa.
sabyasachi1212 (19773) 2007-07-10 2:42
I wouldn't say ugly, fog too has its own beauty, specially up in the mountains, and then if you dont get lost:) A very atmospheric shot, nice reflections too.
With Greetings from India
rbcy1974 (20758) 2007-07-13 3:33
the fog gives this an air of mystery, mayube a bit more of contrast would have been good to bring out more the house from beyond the fog, but otherwise the photo is great
Vato_Law (12720) 2007-07-15 11:27
Well maybe we do not see the beautiful usual light but I do not think this is that ugly, by the opposite I just think it's different from your usual kind of photos.
I like the mistical atmosphere the fog gives to this photos, the smooth reflections on the water surface and the faded colours due to the fog's presence.
AiresSantos (56155) 2007-07-17 23:13
Amazing effect of the fog in this very beautiful composition.
Very nice reflections and colours.
TFs and greetings
Gustaw (21670) 2007-07-18 7:46
Hej, bardzo udane zdjêcie. Podoba mi siê ta spokojna atmosfera. Piêknie przedstawia siê te¿ odbicie we wodzie. Bardzo korzystne zdjêcie.
riclopes (35577) 2007-07-18 10:25
Poor capture, you say...you must be joking, Henrique. As you say in the note, there's a special atmosphere here, problably more beautiful than a shot taken in sunny conditions. Love the soft tones. Not ugly at all.
p.s.- after the break, I'm trying to return slowly here...
anesugur (18789) 2007-07-20 13:36
A great shot with beautiful POV and wonderful atmosphere...
Best wishes. Uğur
batalay (35743) 2007-07-27 14:03
Alonw with Paulo and many other I admire this photograph. The well defined house makes a good counterpoint to the amorphous fog. My apologies for not being able to critique some of your new gems -- I was away for a month. But I shall remedy that in the near future.
fijiphil (1355) 2007-07-30 14:47
Stunning atmosphere, great use of the reflection - but isn't it leaning to the left a little? Inexcusable from a man of your talents!
CRATEOS (7278) 2007-08-03 11:00
a beaute my frend...is worth the waiting...perfect framing work and the light controled exeland...
josepmarin (57823) 2007-08-08 9:40
your image is very pleasant and has a sober beauty, by the great graphical effect that the fog and the reflections in the water offer, combined very well.
The light of the dawn and the gray tones that the fog creates break with the red tones of the house and the green tones of the vegetation.
Gregtom (7167) 2007-08-08 23:11
Rzeczywiście, mgła to też jeden z moich ulubionych tematów... Tutaj stworzyła niepowtarzalny nastrój, którego próżno by szukać w środku słonecznego dnia. Pięknie tu i cicho. Ładny kadr z niemal lustrzanym odbiciem domu w gładkiej tafli jeziora.
Littlewhite (678) 2007-08-26 13:09
you have really some secret, maybe a filter? This house seems suspended in the past, waiting for someone that moves away the enchantment. All your photos have a magic air, and this one is perfectly balanced between the sharpness of the house and its mirroring image, and the fog so wrapping every other thing...
Great shot indeed, wishes,
dareco (17134) 2007-08-28 0:31
Oh no!! This is beautiful!! I think this is a great picture. I love the fog, and the reflection in the water. Very well done!! TFS
cimcim (3712) 2007-08-31 8:50
It seems so mystic...
This photo has a different soul and I like it so much...
have a nice weekend...
afshin339 (306) 2007-09-02 2:01
Your shot is amazing and beautiful with nice situation.The fog is very wonderful and fantastic (Why Ugly?).Your POV and is excellent.also colors and composition are impressive.and also reflection of house in water is superb.
Morgwathien (596) 2007-09-11 8:39
Ta mgla to moze i jest brzydka, ale za to domek na wodzie pieknie sie w niej prezentuje :) Bardzo nastrojowa fotka. Piekny kadr i frapujaca kompozycja. Bardzo udana praca, gratulacje!
fserajian (2295) 2007-09-14 11:09
Nice work, well captured under very difficult lighting condition. The reflection in the water is just great too. TFS
anavazao (5592) 2007-09-16 2:24
great landscape photo very mystic!
good low pov with exposure and focus!
very well composed and well seen
thanks for sharing and the wonderful notes!
Take care Ana:)
Merline (0) 2007-09-22 14:32
I love fog as long as one sees through it:-) and this is a beautiful picture of it with a lovely quiet mood, subtle tones, great details, very peaceful.
noborders (1010) 2007-10-25 3:03
I don't find the fog uggly, have always loved the fog, and the house looks a bit ghostly with its reflections, under the sunshine it would maybe have less appeal...
Pascale (10456) 2007-11-13 0:33
Superbe paysage ,j'aime beaucoup l'atmosphère paisible que donne ce brouillard.Très beaux reflets et belles couleurs douces
flory (4848) 2007-12-09 22:39
'such a poor capture'?...you are modest,but this is a good quality;)
love this foggy atmosphere,grey,white tones..beautiful!sure,it's not funny on the road with fog;)
all the best!
pranab (5354) 2008-01-05 5:47
i disagree with you!! this one is an excellent capture. absence of details of the surroundings is the added value to the mood of this shot. good capture!!
marknunnerley (2780) 2008-02-25 6:52
Big fan of misty comps Henryk. They always have a romance about them. Have one on my wall similar to this.
nesiaZ (982) 2008-04-14 8:58
Mo¿e i paskudna ta mg³a, ale za to jaki nastrój wprowadza :D.
Moja wyobra¼nia podpowiada mi, ¿e zaraz z tego jeziora wy³oni sie potwór ;).
