Foggy Bridge Revisted

This is one of my favorite foggy morning images, with some major manipulation.   It started as a photograph, I don’t know what it is now.   I like it though, and am curious if it appeals to anyone else.  Here’s a link back to the original black and white conversion.

    Brilliant work. While the original was a beautiful image this is much more atmospheric. It creates a deeper sense of mystery. Most enthralling.

    I love the idea that you can take what is undoubtedly a beautiful image and give it an entirely new life. This kind of thinking represents the essence of a creative mind. It’s the same photo, but with new vision. I envy that.

  4. I like the most recent manipulation better too, but it was a tough call. The black and white was great–I kept thinking Sherlock Holmes might walk out of the mist!

  5. My “creative mind” only seems to function during brief, unpredictable moments, but thanks Ken. Yes Patti, I always have wanted to visit England and I couldn’t help but think of a nice thick London fog on this particular morning at this particular spot. Thanks for the comment.

    Great cover for a mystery novel – with Jack the Ripper or maybe a vampire that doesn’t twinkle. The B&W version is definitely a Sherlock tale, but the photographic style suggests a contemporary tone to the work. Both versions a well done.

  7. Most kind, thank you very much. Jack the Ripper actually did cross my mind after I posted this, when I was thinking about the London-esque qualities of the image.

  8. I’ll echo Cedric’s sentiments. The colored version has an extra vitality. Well done.
