Photographer's Note

This is a shot I took about a week ago on a foggy morning. I had several cameras in tow and got a fair number of nice negs. This is the Majestic oak, aka the Oak Queen. You have seen several images of her in B&W, and now I am try to get some good color images of her. This image is somewhat tweaked to capture the little details that film somehow misses sometimes. I boosted the green of her mossy areas a bit and colled the highlights slightly to push the fog, which was not as soupy as I would have liked. I love nice thick mists and the fog this day was only 7 out of 10 in my opinion. Still the foggy season is just starting. I also warmed and dodged the ground around the tree just a bit. This is the result. Let me know what you think.

Here are other images from that same soupy day for reference:
