The colors of the foggy evening are striking. The headlights seem almost an intrusion in this spectral landscape.

I think this is a great scene, with nice monochrome colors. The car makes it interesting and the foggy atmosphere intriguing. Good exposure also.

Excellent background, a fantastic photo as a whole, very well done!

Sorry I missed out on your images, WOW, excelent capture with or without the car. Well done on this compostion.


Very moody picture with fog, I like it!! Only that car a GM......buy a good one....Japanse perfection and it begins with a T and with ends with oyata ;-)

I'm joking... have good Easter weekend


wow this photo is great, the fog and the fact that the whole of the forest can be seen more than the car, makes this photo great, i love the off centerness of the car

good job

Good Day Peter,
Lovely shot and atmosphere.
Beautiful composition with the car in the corner. Nice spot you choose to take your photo too. I like the various shades of the trees.
Very very well done.

Sorry but it remind me a quite old film about THE BIG FOOT :)))
I like this one which is very vell done.

Hi Peter, I love this foggy picture. Very well done !


Love it! In this "spooky" setting, the appearance of the familiar car and its lights are comforting!

Great job! ...Gayle

Peter, it is a great photograph with the fog and the beams of the car turned on it gives it a great effect.
I have not seen this make of a vehicle here in North America. Interesting how lines of vehicles change from one continent to another. Great photo

Wow, what a superb mood you caught here. Capturing mist must be one of the trickiest things in photography. Clever to include the car for contrast, but a pity you have the parking lights on. It would have looked spookier with just a highbeam cutting through the semi darkness.

Great mood shot Peter. I like photos of extreme weather conditions. Sometimes they are so difficult to capture effectively, but you have a great one here. The mysterious white car adds a touch of drama to the composition. I like it!

This sets the mood straight away and the car is positioned well in the frame and add that realistic touch.

Misty shots are my favourite. Gives the scene drama and very atmospheric. Nic work. Sorry about the points, I've run out for today.

Beautiful picture again Peter. I love it in the fogg, very well done.
Best regards

Beautiful image. The misty background forest enphasizes he sharpness of the Commodore.

What else can I say but simply amazing! It's excellent that you did no PP work at all and this picture came out this spectacular. Very Very well done.

Great shot and great mood...

Could be an add for the car! Wonderful image of the fog, Peter!

Love misty atmosphere.
I would have liked this scene without the car, it would have been timeless.
