I went to Point Reyes National Seashore a while back hoping for some great wildlife and ocean shots. Unfortunately, it was so foggy I could barely see my own feet. So I settled for "foggy path" shots.

What do you think? Too much road? Too grey?

I love those, especially the first one. The second may have just a little too much pavement in it, but that's probably a matter of taste.

That first one is very good. Moody and full of feeling. The cropping is perfect.

I think that the 1st one is best -- but that the second one -- given a crop is a close second because of its unusual pattern and peek thru to green.

But you are right… both are a bit gray, and just waiting for a burst of sun to light up the background …. or to bring some diagonal rays into the scene.

Here's hoping you have another foggy day!

I like them both.

I feel myslef leaning to the left when I view the first one - the tilting trees combined with the left-curving road -reinforced by the green roadsides leads my eye to the left.

I like both of them. I have to agree with Jim, a crop excluding some of the path in the foreground would give the second photo much more impact.

Nice work! :)

All these great pointers make me want to go back and try these shots again. But it's an eight hour drive!!! :(

Thanks for commenting guys. :)

They almost look B&W with green . I love the effect of the fog.
