Fog can be a powerful and valuable tool for emphasizing the depth, lighting and shape of your subjects. Photographing in fog, haze or mist gives a moody atmospheric feel to your images. A lot of members shared their best misty shots in this challenge.
The winners with the most votes are:
Congratulations to the winners and honourable mentions and thanks to all the participants in the contest 'Fog'.
'Music meets Photography' is the currently running theme.
Music and photography share a lot of similarities in many ways like composition, colour, harmonies and contrasts, rhythms, expressiveness, etc. They can be expansive, full of life or more subdued, even minimalist.
This contest will end at midnight on Sunday the 19th of July 2020.
The sooner you upload your submission the more chance you have to gather the most votes.

Shenshen Dou PRO
I am humbly honored, truly appreciated participants' excellent fogscapes and all voters! Thank you so much, Yvette! Best regards!
Hello Shenshen, I would like to congratulate for being one of the fortunate persons to be among the top ten: it makes me very happy to share that honor with a good friend like you. It also makes me very happy to see that your delightful scene has been selected as "header photo": it has been very well chosen... Congratulations! :)) I send you with affection my best wishes. Take care! My warmest regards.
Thanks for your appreciation, Shenshen Dou. To both of you, I like to mention that the blog program is automatized and that for one or another reason, the first place image was not displayed as header photo this time. If I can give a good advice to all the participants for the upcoming contests, please upload your image in your portfolio or even use an image which is already in your portfolio, published or not. Then when clicking on the image, the readers will be re-directed automatically to the portfolio of the author. In this case, none of the winning images was in any portfolio, so I simply copy/paste them from the beta version. Sorry for the technical information but consider it as a good advice. Take care you all... Yvette
Hello Yvette, thank you very much for taking the time to give us this excellent explanation: next time, I will try to do it the way you explained. In any case, I still think that the blog program did a good choose: I love the peaceful and romantic view that Shenshen´s image shows. Once again, thank you very much for worring and spending your valuable time giving us the didactic instructions... It is very kind of you :)) I send you with affection and gratitude my best wishes. Please, take care! My warmest regards.
My dear friends Isabel and Shenshen! I am so happy for you as if I myself won this contest. Although I did not participate in it.)) My best wishes to all other participants with no less excellent works. Thanks to everyone, thanks Yvette!

Dear Vladimir, thank you for your kindness and your support to the contest platform, from which I inspired and learned a lot! Best light!
Hello Vladimir, it is very kind of you to come to congratulate us: althought I do not feel I deserve the first place, it makes me very happy to know that others considered that I do :)) Seeing that so many wonderful pieces of art have been left out of the top ten places, I feel especially fortunate and honored for being among the top ten. Thank you very much for your friendship and constantly support :)) I send you with affection and gratitude my best wishes. Take care! My warmest regards.
Dear Isabel, you got the most votes and as you wrote previously, the concept of winner is subjective in the world of art. So ... simply enjoy and stop thinking it is not deserved ;-) Sending you good vibes !!!
... I will try to follow your friendly advice :)) Thank you very much for your friendly attention; and, also, for the smile that your comment drew in my face :)). I send you with affection and gratitude my best wishes. My warmest regards.
Hello to all the friends. I will start by saying that, even knowing that this is a contest, I can not help but feeling and regret that so many wonderful pieces of art have been left "in the dark": very little room for so many masterpieces. Thank you very much to all the participants for delighting me with your magnificent works. Congratulations to all the participants; especially to the most voted, among whom I have the honor of being. I also want to express my heartfelt gratitude to the kind friends who liked my humble work and placed me in the first place (I don´t know if I deserved it)... I think that in the world of art the concept of winner is much more subjective than in many other disciplines. I also would like to thank to Yvette, and other collaborators, for their great labour and constant effort to offer us the best. Thank you very much to all the friends: it is a great honor to be among you :)) I send to all, with gratitude, my best wishes. Good light! My warmest regards.
Thank you so much for your warm comment, dear Isabel. I'm sure everybody - friends, participants and crew will highly appreciate it. To me personally , it is a huge satisfaction to keep the contests 'alive'. Soon new topics, and I truly hope they will please the members. Warm greetings, Yvette
... you are doing a great job: one hundred fifty one works were presented in the "Fog contest", most of them were outstanding images,... I guess that means you have great convening power. Congratulations for the great sucess of the last contests. I wish you lots of luck in whatever duty that you may take. I send you with affection and gratitude my best wishes. Many thanks! My warmest regards.
