[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was taken in Kandy, the 2nd largest city in the center of Sri Lanka. It was the last capital of the ancient kings' era of Sri Lanka. Surrounded by Mountains that are covered with tropical forests and tea plantations, it is one of the most scenic cities in Sri Lanka.

The original photo has been desaturated and a grad filter added to the misty sky for some colour.

Hi Sunil,

You're capturing well this landscape by a good composition and tasteful tone, so it's impressive to see the misty landscape with fantastic atmosphere and calmness. It's impressive in houses standing on the mountain covering trees. Here looks as a place with rich nature from surrounding trees and mountains. And, it's harmonized well with the sky dyed to light orange color. Have a nice weekend!

Kind regards,

Ciao Sunil, fascinating misty composition, wonderful atmosphere, splendid light and colors, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hi Sunil.

A moody misty scene, with depth and intrigue, very atmospheric, well presented.

Stv :0))

I like the mood you have caught in this landscape shot, Sunil!

The fog suspended over the forest adds great mood and drama into the picture.
The colors are natural and light is beautifully handled.
A cinematic frame also adds a piece of beauty to the picture.
Well done!

Kind regards,
