I had great hopes for images I took when I took this one but they didn't work out :/ Hopefully 6+ but could be better if PP was better but I am out of time. I will ask for help on PP after voting.

High end of 6 - 6.96 at 70, rather unexpected but very welcome

"I am pasting here for reference what I said about it on the forums (relevant to this photo):

"Yarra Valley it is 30 miles return trip from where I live so I have made already countless trips looking for the greatest places and times to photograph. I discovered this amazing fog by chance when rushing to capture some morning frost down in the Valley. I was stunned with the incredible beauty of it. I had the wrong lens with me so I could only get far away shots. Then I waited for weeks for another chance. Finally the forecast was right, I knew when sunrise was, the direction, what equipment to take, what time to leave etc. To my disappointment the fog did not lift till the afternoon and dissipated in a totally uninteresting manner! The sun never came out. The only bonus on that day was that I went scouting to the Sugarloaf Reserve on the way back and by chance took my best DPC shot to date for the High Key Challenge.

The next day the fog was forecast again, and again I rushed in the dark to be there at dawn. The spectacle lasted about 2 hours and I took about 600 photos. The intention being to learn the impact of the changing light so the next time I will know the exact location and timing for the best shots. It worked well. I know now when I should not bother and when I have to be ready to shoot. All in the learning I guess."

I've only looked at 17 images so far, but this is spectacular. I reckon you have a high probability of being close to a ribbon with this image. There's no doubt in my mind who this is either. Might get your fourth ribbon. And with a free study too!
