Entry 4 of 25
   
 
Nature's Lace       ©2013 Mepo
Panasonic DMC-FZ30       4th place, 145 points
1/1250s, f7.1, ISO 80, ?, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Reduced saturation. Adjusted contrast & levels. Boost blacks.       Extra Info: Ice fog rolling up off the river reminded me of this poem:

She wraps me in her icy flow
and chills me 'til I'm warm

    Congratulations Mr Mepo! I just knew in my heart that this capture was yours because of the fog. I love it! It's beautiful, yet kind of spooky at the same time! ^5

    Well done MEPO. Another title could have been "Fatal Attraction"

    Thanks for the votes and comments.

For those of you who didn't know, the poem refers to the fact that some people feel they are getting hot as they start to freeze. Police used to be stymied when they found a frozen body naked and all the clothes piled alongside. Now we know better and if you start to feel your hands (for example) warming up when you are still in the cold it is time to take emergency measures to warm them up.

    The B&W treatment seens to have the weird effect of bringing the trees to life

    When I first looked at the image, I got a chill! This capture just screams "it's cold!" LOL! In my top picks...; good luck!

    the boosting of the blacks has worked. the speed has captured the fog in freeze motion
