Foggy day, I always have a hard time getting fog to look good in photos. I thought this turned out pretty well though. It is HDR, I used I believe 5 RAW photos. I had a hard time deciding between the color and B&W version, but in the end I decided this one had a more timeless feel. I was trying to achieve a sort of dreamy surreal photo, and I like how the disappearing path creates a sense of uncertainty, and mystery.

This is definitely an exceptional image. Hard to say which is better - the color or the b/w. Obviously, the b/w didn't do too poorly for you :-)

One of my very few favourites in this challenge; 4th or 5th look does not disappoint.

I'm a big fan of fog. 'grats on top 10!

Love this. Makes me think of "Beyond the Blue Horizon."

winner!!! :)

Beautiful. IR i'm assuming. The way the track trails off into the mist is wonderful, the stile and small tree adding just enough extra detail to the scene. My favourite in the challenge and pick for the Blue. 10!

Great!

Lovely almost ethereal looking composition. Looks very nice in b&w. I like how the background fades away into the mist. 10

Ooooooo...very nice! I love how the land disappears into nothingness.

This screams ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Posthumous to me. If it is not his entry, I would expect him to like this one.

Upon a second look, it's probably not his after all. Not blurry enough for his usual style.

the leading line in this is perfect...had to have gotten up really early for this...absolutely stunning...

And so where does this Road go? Forward, then fading, forlorn in its black and white starkness. I cannot see the end and yet I want to travel it. I could not say that, were it not for you. Unique and powerful photograph.

I love this image. The softness of the tones are beautifully intriguing - it's a path I'd like to follow! This was a great challenge - I loved so many of the photographs, but this is my favorite.

Almost a dream. Lovely!!

Love the tracks disappearing into the mist.

Great use of B&W on your entry and I like the way your background disappears.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the fog. Great capture
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/25/2009 10:44:36 PM
I think it's an excellent 'Landscape'. It's looks foggy which is very mysterious (and very rare) to me. 10

Intriguing shot. I hope this does well for you it's one of my top five. Love it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/24/2009 05:45:03 PM
It almost seems as if the tracks are unnaturally lifting off the ground and into the mist. Otherwise this is a really cool shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/24/2009 12:16:12 PM
I like this one
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/24/2009 09:23:14 AM
Rather ghostly. Not sure I want to follow that track!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/23/2009 09:45:51 PM
A landscape with an undefined horizon... this is perfect. For a landscape it contains a lot of emotion, and is processed beautifully.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/23/2009 09:30:09 PM
Very evocative image. Love it. Wish the ruts weren't so straight-on.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/23/2009 05:26:20 PM
I like the way the road disappears into the fog. A bit of noise in the sky though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very moody shot. Well done. Love the dof!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/23/2009 02:15:33 PM
The simplicity is just stunning. One of my faves so far.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/23/2009 09:16:35 AM
I like the surreal feel
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/23/2009 07:42:46 AM
This has a Wuthering Heights feel to it :)
Very nice work indeed 9
