Taken on Saturday, prior to an early (very!) Christmas dinner with friends (Mr and Mrs Assyrian!), whilst walking around our local coarse fishing pond / reservoir.

It was fairly chilly, the sun was just dropping of the horizon and a mist was lifting off the water.

B&W taken 'in camera'.

ISO 100 (honest!!), 1/15th sec (hand held!), f/13, circular polarizer (cokin A) and a pinch of timing / luck!

Camera:Canon EOS 350D
Lens:18-55mm kit lens
Recording media:JPEG (digital)
Title:Cold day at the pond

Works well in mono and you definitely got the better angle - well done.
It's gotten grainier in upload which is a shame because the original is so sharp and clear, despite the mist!

Love the feel of this. Works well as a mono shot
The mist is very atmospheric

I think I'd try and bring the mist out a little more, but this gets a vote for being dark and gloomy, but in an eerie way, which I find it fascinating.

Did a good job there sir! I remember the other side - kids exploding petrol in a fire off to the left, more kids jumping on the ice in the middle of the pond Wyle E Coyote style, the distant sounds of scrambler bikes tearing up the undergrowth........ Did we go to Beirut that day?

I had a lovely time there on the Wednesday - the only sounds I heard were distant birds calling and the click of my shutter!!
