    Took these on Monday (or was it Sunday ? not sure) sun was setting over a field behind us but the field was shrouded in fog, was a magical scene.

    Different settings to pick out the red a bit better

    Sorry about the noise, have got to sort out noise ninja or similar.

    The 1st one is excellent - lovely shades. Lack of foreground spoils the 2nd one by comparison. Top effort

    Very nice colours, I might have tried to crop out more of the dark bits to see what that looks like :thumbsup:

    The first one is truly magical. Love it.

    Agree with the others, both great shots. I do prefer the first though as the colours look a bit more natural. Great shot.

    You've got a great capture there, particularly like the first photo. The colours are beautiful

    I don't know the specifics of the scene that presented itself to you but in an ideal situation your composition could have been improved by putting more emphasis on the lovely sky in your frame as the dark grassy (non-foggy) foreground is not really interesting, same applies regarding the tall trees to the left of the frame

    Was holding the camera above a fence and just pointing it in roughly the right direction, agree with comment about No 2 though.

    After seeing SteveGreens fog photo's I am inspired to look for more than I have presented above.

    Yeah, what Dave said about the composition - the first one is beautiful.
