They are all beautiful, as usual, but the first one is the one that absolutely blows me away. It feels like the end of the world!

Stunning work. Easily the best I've seen by you on this forum. I like them all, but I agree that #1 is a knockout. Congratulations!

I am curious about the equipment you used and how you postprocessed these.

Your mind has a quite extraordinary eye, Timo! All are wonderful but the first is staggeringly beautiful and awe-inspiring. Amazing.

Speechless... cannot add more to the comments above... drolling.

When I look at those images, I no longer see photographs: I simply feel the mood. There is no composition, no light, no tones... nothing to talk about, just a feeling that grabs me. And that is exactly what drove me into photography; thanks for remembering me why I am here.

Fully concur with What Eric has commented here...but rather than the end of the world it roars of creation for me...I clipped it to my secondary moniter and have been watching it over the last 24 hours and can't shake the sense that not only are the planets not round, but have not happened yet, if that makes any sense all...an absolutely stunning image completely and wholly the polar opposite of miasma....WOW I love this one!!!  p.

My own critique would be as follows:

1) A home run. Truly stunning. Primordial. I echo the sense of timelessness (beginning/end/awe) that the others have attributed to this image. I keep wanting to look at it again and again.

2) Rather nice at first blush, but is too blurred toward the far-end of the image and doesn't really captivate my interest for long, as with the first one. I looked for a payoff but never really found it.

3) Ditto. I don't get to see color. I don't get to see the whole tree. And although I understand it is supposed to make me feel "dreamy" ... I kept wanting to "step back" and see something interesting in the fog ... but I never got to see anything truly captivating ... so I went away a bit unsatisfied here also.

4) I like this one. Not quite as riveting as the first, but I did get a sense of satisfaction looking at it. As EduPerez said, I "felt the mood" in this one ...

That's my honest $0.02,

Jack

I particularly like the image of the reeds. Peaceful, serene, mystical it's got it all.

I also like your use of depth of field, to bring focus on your subject. Your post-production editing
is very good, not too heavy in my opinion, adds to the atmosphere of the piece quite well.

Good job!

Timo, More fantastic stuff. I missed it at first because I've been on the road for a week. The 2011 B&W Magazine portfolio contest is open now. Entries have to be in by December 31st. Contest info is at http://www.bandwmag.com/contest/index.html. If you don't enter a portfolio of a dozen of your black and white productions, you're crazy. I don't see how you can miss a spotlight award.

I can’t figure out what the subject or scale the first image is, but it’s an excellent portrait of soft textures and tones. I've seen how you capture atmosphere - mist and fog - in other shots - a technique we’d all like to learn more about - and that’s the unifying feature of the first one.

The sepia treatment for the reeds is good and the photo is another example of how you blend the atmosphere, tone and subject. I think if I did this image I’d reduce most or all the buildings to the faintest of shadows in the fog, or gone entirely. The buildings make the scene far less of a single subject, which is a compositional trait in most of your works.

As others have said, fine work.
