Really love stuff like this. The atmosphere and the desaturated colour really goes well.

This is great.

I don't remember seeing this one before but the desaturation is so right here for the thin, cold mist. I'm fascinated by empty-fairground and deserted-resort shots, this has that same desolate look.

Superb. The mist and muted colours work brilliantly.

Perfectly timed. There's a heavy sense of sadness in this image. An older Gent. passing through life, reminiscing about a long gone youth as he walks towards the mist.

Perfect. If I could give an award, I would.

The mono version was one of my favourites too. Great to see another take on it.

I haven't seen it before so thanks for re-posting or I'd have never seen it!
Superb image, I love everything about it but especially the way the buildings on the left fade away into the mist.

This shot shot takes me to a place in my mind that I relish, its where cause and effect resides its a place where lonley, and cold causes me to wish for log fires friends and good conversation and perhaps a nice wine and the love of a good woman ( which I already have) if that makes any sense? its a wonderful capture David.

This is/was among my favorite shots..has every element working,at first thought I had already commented on this so was ment just to be a refresher[I do look at some photos over and over]..I like this just as much and in some ways it adds something by taking colour out...jury is out.

Fantastic, love the scene, the desaturation works well and gives it a more feeling of being an old photo, well Done, your portfolio is great too! Smile
