For Friday theme "Looking Down" - 24-07-2008

I like the fog
It's soft and cool,
It hides everything
On the way to school.
I can't see a house
I can't see a tree,
Because the fog
Is playing with me.
The sun comes out
The fog goes away,
But it shall be back
Another day.

this shot has been taken above the Jim Corbett ranges of forests. its in Uttranchal, now "Uttrakhand". me and my friends had a good time roaming in the forest to capture something wild. and here comes this fog.

Hello Manuj,
Only one word. No need any other one...

Hello Manuj,

The fog hasn't prevented you from capturing a very atmospheric shot! The wetness surrounds the man as he tramps along, stoically.
The pov is well chosen with the wide path drawing the eye into the shot. Then a lot of searching occurs as the eyes try to distiguish blurry shapes!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Many thanks for your warm comments on 'Looking down on Beadnell Beach'

Hello Manuj! Very good scene. Original picture. Mysterious fog, mysterious rain. Good shot. Well done!

Hello Manuj.
Good shot in the fog, but imo, a big cropp from the left side and bottom would have done well.
Regards from Jan

Hello, Manuj -
Wonderful atmosphere to this image. It's interesting how dense fog can sometimes harm an image and sometimes enhance it - here it works to your advantage very well. You managed the difficult lighting with skill. Well done.

Hi Manuj,

Wonderfully atmospheric picture, lovely composure and the figure with the umbrella is magnificent. Great take on the theme, well done and TFS,

Hope you and your family are all well my friend,

Take care,

Hi Manuj

Hi Manuj

What a wet place! The mist adds a lot of atmosphere in the image.
Like the man in the shot, who looks like he is out for a Sunday afternoon stroll


Cool shot my friend. Regarding your question, it's 3X3 inches diagonal measurement of the spider.

merhaba Manuj...
very enteresting composition..

Hi Manuj,

i like the foggy/misty atmosphere and the the lonely man walking down the road. a nice capture.


A wonderful idea and beautiful foggy colours.
I like the man coming back from work

Manuj Hi;
Excellent theme presentation - the composition is presented very impressively, not a easy task with the fog. Thanks for the note, as always.
Congratulations, very well done, my friend.

Hi Manuj

This surprises me. Usually placing the subject in the centre of a photograph is a bad technique. However I think in this case it works; something about the surroundings makes it ok.

Good subdued light and saturation in the foggy surroundings.


Hello Manuj

An excellent capture here, moody and detailed with good depth and detail.

TFS and for joining in the theme

kind regards Helen

really unique shot, love all the fog.

A nice soft effect cause by the fog Manuj. Very well composed with good colour and detail. I wondered where all the fog from here had gone, North of the equator, by the looks of things.

hello Manuj,
I missed this one yesterday and glad to find it now. It's a well composed atmospheric shot. The man with the umbrella is well placed in the frame. The mist must have been heavy enough to feel like rain. Co-incidentally, we set off yesterday to climb a hill in Scotland but the mist higher up was so heavy that it felt like a fine rain. The rocks higher up were so slippy that we had to give up and turn back. I missed a shot of some ravens, which was a pity.

Hi Manuj,
Very good foggy image! This scene could leave of a psychological thriller where the man, after a gasoline breakdown, is alone in the fog surrounded by several invisible enemies. The tension in the air would be enhanced by a haunting music... LOL
I like when an image excite my imagination, This is the case, here!
Congratulations! Annie

Hi Manuj,

You did great capturing this moment . . and still clear focus on the man with foggy BG . .
Well done my friend


Many thanks for your kind words on Breakfast .

Hi Manuj,
Nice one for the theme, quite mysterious, one wonders where the path leads away into the fog.
Have a nice weekend Manuj,

This is SO moody!! Really nice low light work here Manuj! Good posting for the theme! I love the curve of the road, good control of light as often the glare is a pain on foggy days! Nice work!
B-) B-)

Hi Manuj. Lovely 'soft' shot. If anything, I feel the man is a little too central in the image but the wagon seems to balance the right side out a bit. Excellent use of the conditions to get this subdued shot. Regards, Paul.

How did I miss this photo? As Jan said, I would crop a part of the bottom, but the atmosphere is incredible. Very well done, Manuj. TFS

HI Manuj
You oviously have no problems catching anything that comes your way. This fog shot is quite impressive.
Would that be a garbage truck on the right side of the road?
