This was a great photo. I thought it was one of the best. I enjoy the composition, leaving the tree off-center with the appearance of the road dissappearing into the fog was great.

Congratulations on your 9th place finish. I called it tender and warm and let me add, almost magical. Great job.

This shot has for me a great kind of green / brown to it that makes memories slide by :)

I like this photo but I don't see any everyday object in it !? to me, a tree is not an object but a living plant.

your eye for setting the stage shows on this fine shot -- fog sets all but the tree into the background, sepia-like tone matches the mood well. One of my ribbon picks this challenge -- good luck :)

I think that is a excellent photograph bur it's not the theme

Can be considered a tree or a road a everyday object?
07/30/2004 12:52:35 PM
nice color tones, just lovely!

nice tone. crop bit tight on the left.
You want the tree as main subject but I tend to look down the road, more space on the left might help.

This is a lovely composition. It reminds me almost exactly of a spot I pulled off the road on the Blue Ridge Parkway about a week ago as I was riding to Asheville, NC. I like the leading like created by the wall that takes me to the tree and back to the course of travel. The fog is beautiful. I love the way it interacts with landscapes in photography.

The sepia tone here bothers me slightly. In some way, it counters the effect of the fog. In general, when I think of fog, I think of cooler temperatures. The added warmth in the image with the sepia tone contradicts this feeling somewhat. If this was one of my own photos, I would have chosen the black and white route most likely and maybe added a very slight tint of blue to enhance the feeling of 'coolness' in this beautiful scene.

Beautiful photo :)

Stunning image here!
As I look at this shot, Norah Jones is playing in the background and really enhanced the mood. Good eye! Can't say enough good about this shot.
One of my favorites in this challenge! ((10))

I don't know if it is a daily object but what a nice photo! I'd eliminate the frames... the picture and the fog talk themselves!

I like very much the frame and the point of view but, for me, the tones are a little too washed out.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/28/2004 12:39:36 AM
Border is a bit too big for my taste, but I wont let that detract from my vote because this is an awsome photo - 10 Just clone out the line and sell this one as a print...
