Re: Channel Markers

This is a location I go to whenever there is fog because I suspect there is a grand and mysterious photo to be had here that I can't quite find. Of course every fog is different and the sentinels change at times. Please tell me what I can do to get the photo I suspect may be hiding here. I've tried various lenses. The approach is limited - either from the bridge over the channel or a small jut of land to the right of these channel markers, but it doesn't get you quite level with the water.

Like everyone else I have to say that this is a beautiful image. But there is something about it that leaves you unsatisfied I guess - reading into the tone of your original post. I am not a great photographer so feel free to just ignore this - but to me, fog has texture. I don't know how you add texture into a photo like this but I'd be tempted to experiment with a bit of soft grain. I don't think you'll get a better picture because that would be difficult but you will get a different picture.
