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…

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_)/ 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. :)

It looks a lot like a painting but the picture is a really nice piece.

That IS strange. But, it makes the photo that much more interesting.
