    Mist and fog
    Lovely time of year. Autumn mornings where the mist hangs low over any open area and the fog lies thick over the river. Photos of mist and fog this week please.

    Contest Rules:

    1. Any digital photo or digitally-scanned photo relevant to the theme will be accepted within the contest period. In case there's a gray area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first.

    2. Please resize your digital photo to no more than 650 x 490 or 490 x 650 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. You are also allowed to adjust the brightness and contrast of your picture but these should not dramatically alter the look of the picture. But other than those, any form of picture editing or modification is not allowed. This is a photo contest, not a picture editing/special effect contest. You may add a watermark or your name/nickname to the photo for identification purposes.

    3. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack or photobucket. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how.

    4. Only ONE picture per member per contest. Once a picture is posted, it cannot be changed other than a total withdrawl by that member from that week's photo contest. Exceptions will be made for modification to comply with the rules, such as resizing.

    5. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best.

    6. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, I will do the polling in more than one thread. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the polling threads in the order they were submitted.

    7. These pictures must be something that you took, not something taken off someone else's photo albums or taken by someone else. I have no way of checking if you did this, so we'll go by the honor system.

    8. You can use a picture only once. Once it is used in a contest, it cannot be reused in another contest.

    9. Please post only pictures meant for submission in this thread

    I have the feeling there's bad juju associated with being the first to enter a contest, but I'll start things off.

    Taken on a quick stop off on my way to work. About a minute before this there was a beautiful soft light that picked out all the dew drops on the grass and illuminated the mist a lovely colour. I was disappointed I didn't set up in time. About a minute after that dense fog rolled in and made it a completely different scene, so my timing could have been worse.

    Wow, so many good entries! Who knew "fog" could be such an inspiring topic.

    I have already used my best fog pictures in earlier contests. But I still may have something reasonably interesting on my disk.

    I had some foggy pics that would fit this theme, but one of my hard drive crashed that had this pic. I recovered the pic though, but its corrupted, I'm trying to find a program what will fix jpeg images.

    This was made on a bright and cold october morning at Chateau Montcru, the intended place of the PF reunion. The fog in the valley just started to lift to pass the place. Very unreal.

    Very nice pictures. Too bad the fog that has been around here lately seems to have evaporated.

    I've always loved the fog. :-)
