This photo is taken in 2008, the day I accidentally discovered misty forests as a subject. The more perceptive people amongst you might have noticed I've been hooked ever since ;)

I don't know who the person is. He/she just walked into the frame when I was taking pictures of the road, stood there for a few seconds and then walked into the forest again.

:boing: :boing: :boing: :boing: :boing:

Post-processing: I darkened the borders, changed the colours, upped the contrast and reduced the noise.



My photos are NOT stock. This means I do not want them to be used in any way. I don't mind them being used as a reference for a drawing/painting though: please visit this link for the rules nelleke.deviantart.com/journal…

Actually, he looks more like the Phantom of the Opera to me. But anyway, the colors are quite lovely, as is the mist, lovely effect.

Strange person appears from nothing and disapears suddenly ¯\(o_º)/¯ Sounds like a Twin Peaks scene...

I was thinking, "Hm, another cool mist picture. Kinda bland, 'cause they had a model in the mist; makes it too cliche." Then I read the description, and the fact that this was just a passerby who stayed for such a short period of time suddenly made the image much more powerful. It gives the entire piece a mysterious, almost surreal presence, that such an event should happen so perfectly- I love it. That single fact made this piece; very well done, friend. :)

Okay, this person looks so much like Anastasia from the warner brothers movie. It's funny because she couldn't remember who she was or where she came from. I like it very much. :)

That is creepy! Is she wearing a mask or have you obscured her face? It's a very affecting image, I think you should try adding some creepy cosplay characters to your scenes.

I thought at first it was a painting instead and I just realized it's the magnificent colors of nature captured in a frame. Well done... Though I'm still wondering about the man/woman on the road XDDD He/she sure looks a bit scary!

Wow, whoever that person is, they look creepy in the misty forest, especially with the significantly white face. It looks like they're wearing a hocky mask or something... :s

Anyway, this is a magnificent photo. Lovely.

Somehow, with that person in the road looking up, the title fits--I suspect you already figured that out, since it is your title....:XD: The lighting in this with the mist almost makes it feel like indoors, instead of outdoors--you could almost forget you were in a forest, and be confused, indeed....
