Foggy Night 5D3 and 50mm 1.8 II
« on: March 13, 2013, 04:31:49 PM »
Check it out! This is raw --> converted to jpg --> downsized to 3MP. No editing in the shot. Let me know what you think.

I got home after a wedding and it was super foggy. This is the shot I got of a light shinning off my house through the fog last night at 11pm.

because of housewall and the beach umbrella on right side (Background right Center side of Image) it does not look for me like a night shot...

I really enjoy this shot. The sunbeams, the shadows, all very interesting and cool. But I agree that it just doesn't look like night... I think part of it, for me, at least, is the white balance. Any chance of a cooler edit, or maybe a B+W? You're probably swamped with wedding stuff, but I think this is a great image, and worth some time to tweak in post, if you have time to spare...

I know it looks crazy. That was pretty much exactly how it looked to my eye when I was taking the picture. It is rarely foggy like this where I live and the house lights were shinning through like the sun in the shot.

I took a few variations of the shot and picked this one as my favorite. The others, I experimented with BW and cooler WB to make it look more like night, more and less contrast, and vignette... None of them really had the magic I felt in this one so I decided the first one I took, unedited was what I was happy with.

Gorgeous shot, well exposed

Thank you. I really was in the right place in the right time..

Cool.  Something about it is very evocative of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial
