[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today as I got up and looked out, a layer of fog had settled in the valley. The weak morning sun didnt quite reach through it - creating a very nice light. Over the fog you can see the mountain tops. It was a really beautiful scene! The temperature was a warm -8 degrees celcius - up 15 degrees from yesterdays -23...

Two exposures - forground and background. Layer mask and sharpening :)

Hi Torbjorn,
I like this image, very aesthetic. Great pleasant feeling in viewing peak of the mountain protruding out of the deep fog. Very nicely composed picture.

I'm starting to be a fan of your northern landscapes. Another perfect contribution. i love this frost on the trees and the thick, heavy layers of clouds. Excellent light. I almost feel the chill on my back (especially that we have also the first attack of winter this year).
Best greetings,

Hi Torbjorn,
Excellent shot. I like the depth of your photo how it leads your eye from the bottom to the top. I also like the grey and white tones through out the photo,
great shot,

Very impress morning. The mountain in the frost and I can feel being frozen to the bone. But have something unnatural on the bottom of pic need to remove, I think so.
If you dont mind, I will give you a WS on the next day. Weel done.

Hello Torbjørn,

Nice timing to be there at the right moment. Love the mood of this picture. The early morning must have been calm. The composition of three layers (valley, fog and top of mountains) gives a superb felling of depth. I can imagine the fog slowly unvailing the mountain. Correct exposure and nice work in PP.

PC :)

Hei Torbjørn,
Wonderful atmosphere is well captured here!
Very wintery... cloudy, snowy and low light...
Well composed, fine details!

Hello Torbjorn,
This is so wonderful. It almost seems like being tow different pictures. What a great scenery. I'm amazed about the variation in temperature. Winter is coming here too and we usually have very cold climate here. Actually it is +5 degrees Celsius but not for long :) Well done again and TFS,

What a beautiful landscape. Very nice pov and depth. Very nice colours - from dark to a blue sky.
TFS paula.

This is really nice Torbjorn. I like the colors and the feel of it...particularly the foreground. I think maybe I would crop a little off the top, the part with the blue sky in it. That way I can grasp the whole image as one unit. Otherwise I feel I have to shift my eyes up and down and it feels a little disjointed to me....but then I always seem to like tighter compositions. : )

great shot with lots to look at and good detail. the composition is very good and the mist/fog in the middle is well exposed. It is almost like I need to rub out the middle bit to see the picture underneath - leaving much to the imagination, but giving it pointers.

Good. I like it very much! Go ahead like this!!!

Hi Torbjorn,
I see you are in full control of the merging and layer technique in Photoshop. This is a really cool shot and the merge of the two exposures is perfect. Just love the way the peak appears out of nowhere. The combination of the cold white and blue colors with the soft warm pinkish clouds is really stunning.

Hi Torbjorn,

Brilliant - yet another gorgeous (and cold-looking!) photo and a very effective landscape composition accentuates the horizontal layering of cloud, peak, sky, trees... Very good use of merging the two exposures, you can't really tell. I haven't been brave enough to attempt one of those yet... :-)

I have to say I partially agree with the contrast and cropping out the road/roofs (?) in do's workshop, I think that works quite nicely although I feel it's a little too much, I much prefer the colouring in your original. Perhaps posted a little too big too, it doesn't fit on my 19" monitor!

Nit picks aside, I can really feel the atmosphere in this shot - great work, again ;-)

TFS, Doug
