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.
--- 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…
(No, this is not about Slenderman. Comments that contain nothing but a reference to this dear fellow will be hidden.)
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.
