Strange plants drenched in water from the passing fog makes for an interesting landscape. There was heavy fog all over the mountains and it made the plants look rather unique and made for a moody shot. Had to lower the jpeg quality to 60 because the file was big so it looks a tad bit less sharp than the original.

Sorry Dvir, this ones not working for me.. I think its because I see it as cluttered and without much of a focal point..

Granted, it is a bit dreary and the focal point is not dramatic, but I think it can still make a nice image. I liked the feeling of the scene. Of course I was not there, but I wish I had been. That, for me at least, says the image had a message. I cropped and lightened, plus added a hint of streaming sun coming into the image. Just another view.

Hi Dvir, Interesting image i found myself starring at it for a while trying to come make up my mind on it. Yes, its cluttered but I think you have a nice leading line to the tree in the back of the image I would brighten that area a bit to anchor it as the focal point of the image and to give the viewers eye a place to settle.

Hi Dvir, I like this repost best. I agree with Don Lacy's critique in that it is cluttered but still works and I think you made some sense out of the clutter, which would be hard to do with such a scene as this.

Thanks all, and yeah I agree Andrew, it isn't an easy scene, but I like the final result quite a bit.
