This has to be one of the most intriging photos that I have ever seen. I would like to know what lens was used. Color saturation like this in a fog scene has been virtually impossible for me so I would assume that you used a wide angle lens at a close range with slide film. Am I CORRECT? Whenever I have used a telephoto lens in the fog it compressed the fog so much that any color in the scene tuned pastel. Would you please explain how you acheived this effect. Thank you.

Some truly amazing colours. And a lovely depth of field. A bright and yet moody atmosphere. Did you see the fairies or the beast hiding behind the trees ?
Nice touch of magic Jeff !

Hi Jeff.
I have always been against external methods enhancing photos,such as filters,special lighting etc.
looking at your picture,i would like to think that it is"what you see is what you get"I hope you clicked this with raw talent,a camera and a lens only,including your film off course!
If that is the case,consider yourself profesional!well done and thanks for a picture that I can walk into anytime I want to.
Super!! #543

I have more photos for you to see at http://www.digitalphotocontest.com

Go to the archive section... and look up the photographers section... look for Jeff Brown... I have about 50 or so winning photos there.

Thanks for your interest!!! Any comments please email me at graphman@one.net

Hi Jeff, I still love this image and miss talking to you and seeing your work in the contest..This is a classic shot.
I always think of this shot when I'm out there in the foggy woods.
HOpe that you and the new child are doing well. #1857030

Wow, That was in 2001 and in One day it will be Jan 2015. Many years ago. It goes to show that a great shot is always great no matter how experienced we get at shooting images ourselves. Someday I'll find a similar scene and capture it and think of you. Wish that you were here to see this comment. I miss you! #11215034
