I know this pic doesn’t have any immediate, dramatic impact but it’s the scene I found one morning as I left the house on my way to work. The landscape that is so familiar suddenly adopted a really mystical feel about it with this fog and the way it followed the contour of the hills. I don’t know if this feeling passes itself on to you, the viewer, as well but, if it does, I’d be interested to know.

Lovely layered image here, and I think it does convey the mood you intend. Well done, and well spotted!

Serwus Tony !
Not a dramatic impact it has, You wrote? Well, it depends on what we are looking for in photography. And for me, Your Work has an immediate impact because of the atmosphere You captured. Not an easy task to shoot in the fog and achieve succes. Imho, You did it well - You chose a very nice scenery with disappearing poles on the fields and full of mystery mountains in the background. I love such a mood of early morning and i'm sure You live in the amazing place.

This is an awesome shot. Love the layers and the softness of the colours created by the fog. Nice use of three bands too - the sky, the fog, the foreground. Nice one.
All the best

This looks like the final of the Super 14 Rugby game that was held tonight in Christchurch, NZ!! Those posts could be the rugby teams Tony, they were that hard to see!!
Joking aside, I think this pic DOES have an immediate, dramatic impact. I like seeing the layers of the hills and trees and fences through the fog. It does give a very mysterious atmosphere.
Well captured Tony. Janice

Very nice photo, I like the effect the fog makes. Really nice and mysterious feeling to the image. Very nice work, the landscape looks a bit of kilt. Other than that there is nothing I can say that is negative about this image. Very nice lanscape photo. TFS.

Great shot Tony! I love low-hanging mist, and fog in the mountains gives this shot a very mysterious and tranquil feeling. I agree with Arnoud..this picture smells good. Well done! :)

a lovely scene capture here with amazing weather condition, for me it's a dramatic impact, I can smell the fresh air of the NZ morning, superb shot,

The fog is really mysterious here. Showing faded foreground and glimpses of treetops and hills. Really calm pastel greens and blues.
I have a strange feeling that your standard frame does not quite work with this scene, but I don't have any alternative in mind...
