I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next...

Wonderful picture, very moody and mystic. You captured a very mysterious atmosphere, great composition and perfect control of exposure. Everything seems so soft and gentle. Very well done, Salma.
Wish you the best.

What a lovely picture, very artistic and graphic! Original point of view, very creative! Love the main grey tone you got here, and the way you turned the over-exposure into something which looks like a foggy-snowy scenery (quite irreal for Saudi Arabia...) or a wide dusty cloud, well, as a huge soft veil covering the future. Great detailled silhouettes too, to enhance this wonderful atmosphere. Great mood, great quotation, great photo! That's it!

Extraordinary shot! The image of the trees and the building peaking through the mist is very mystical and it conveys a sense of meaning that at perfectly clear shot would not have. I like the bright, high key look too, which looks great. Well done!

Dreamy shot, Salma
Misty mild lighting gives the tone and color of this picture a very impressive touch.
And it illustrates your note very well.

no perfect ending salma! this life isnt a disney movie with prince charming carrying his damsel in distress, but you have a perfect picture as you portray a mood or an emotion in the onlooker. it gives me a feeling of uncertainty and excitment of the mysteroius. well done

I am really amazed how well shades of grey work here. Perfect example that photography is painting with light. Well done.

Superb example of a mist "high key" image with a hint of building in the mist

anotherone of this tower ! Is it also a sand storm or is it fog? The palm trees are like brushstrokes, the tower a firm counterpoint. Congratulations.
