Great photo, reminds me of the movie a lot, especially the misty river scenes. I'm expecting Martin Sheen to be hidden in the foreground for some reason. LMAO

Thanks for all the support on this one. My highest score so far. 7th place. Also very encouraging to get the 2nd highest count for the most "Favorites" on this Challenge.

This was not originally shot for the challenge. This scene was next to a puddle with birds that were my subjects.

When reviewing and playing with the images I shot that day, I was adjusting the contrast to try to hide a dark dust spot near the edge, when I went high contrast, it really reminded me of the Apocalypse Now movie. So I spent a lot of time trying to get the best coloring I could and retain the mood of the movie.

Thanks again,

Rod

Returning to comment. Wonderful smoky / foggy effect. It does look like something's gone terrible wrong. Very nice composition and color.
