My contribution to the Friday's theme "Ghost photography" a view of Viking statues through the fog looling like ghost which are coming back. I tried to put the picture up yesterday, unfortunately the site was not working properly.

Bom dia Pierre,
Probably your contribution to the topic will be the only uploaded because no one knows what has to be ghost photo.
That said I tell you that your photo is very good and very eerie.

Hi Pierre,
Well one could say silhouettes of ghosts rising out of the low lying mist. A very good presentation for the theme. Only now after seeing your image do I know what the theme is, thanx.

Hello Pierre,the statues half hidden in the fog do indeed create a ghostly feel.They make an interesting set of shapes against the grey horizon.
Regards Jean.

Hi Pierre,
A nice find, but the photo could use some improvements. The few twigs at the bottom do not add much to the photo. The photo is underexposed and the white balance, in my view, could a little cooler. Exposure and white balance with fog always need adjustments. Camera's try to look for midtones and you white balance was probably set for daylight.

I did a WS to show you want I mean.

Hi Pierre.
Pretty good effort could probably do with a foreground crop still a good entry for the theme.
Cheers Dave.

Hi Pierre, Nice composition taken in a foggy environment. There has no scary feeling of Ghost but still a nice contribution to the Theme.

Hello Pierre! Fantastic take. Superb light and shadow. Good contrast. Great composition. Regards!

Nice shot. The fog adds atmosphere and completes the picture.
