I love the fog. I was lucky to take this photo in a very extreme weather - very cold, windy and raining. It was taken in a very beautiful place in the Dandenongs. I think the grass will look too green for November in the northern hemisphere but most DPCers are from there hence I called it November and not June. The shape at the end is most likely a bush. I thought about cloning it out but without it the photo looked boring! I wonder whether it will increase or lower the score. Very interested how this will score, hoping for 6+

Thanks for comments. I am still puzzled about what happened on rollover when my score went down from 6.5606 at 132 votes to 6.5191 at 131. That make this image drop from #6 to #10.

Congrats on top 10! Very clever to title it the opposite of its real meaning for you. :)

Nice tones and I like the way the fog adds to the "dreamy" feel. Not sure if it is a tree or not but in the middle of the photo the dark spot is a bit distracting... (although you couldn't take it out with advanced editing) may want to take it out and put it on your wall? Might add nicely to a room.

This is awesome. I have taken shots in forests a million times, and I never get the branches right. Wonderful detail!
