Misty Morning Fog

Photograph by Malgorzata Walkowska, National Geographic Your Shot

“This beautiful pond is actually not too far from my home” in Poland, says Your Shot member Malgorzata Walkowska, who came across this scene while taking a shortcut home one December morning. "I really loved how it was surrounded by very old trees that reflect in the still water, especially on foggy mornings. Since I discovered this unusual place, I like to go back during different light and weather conditions and photograph it."

Walkowska's image recently appeared in Your Shot's Daily Dozen.

I reckon that in this photo you can see many things. Both exhilarating and you can think what our nature presents. Also the method of doing this photo is amazing. I think that double exposure is interesting method to make your photos just amazing! Congratulation Malgorzata Walkowska! I am beginner, just 15 years old but the method will appear in my photos. :)

Your photo is both quieting and disturbing.  Excellent.  And I understand double exposure while some commenters obviously do not.  Great job!.  Makes me want to try with some of my photos.

Dear Friends! Thank you very much for all your comments and plusses. PLEASE see the link below. This information should help you understand better my photograph that was taken in double exposure technique. NOTHING WAS PHOTOSHOPED. The landscape was created by combining (IN THE CAMERA) two shots in one. Please also visit my profile on Your Shot (just click on my name above)where you will have a chance to see some more of my double exposure shots, including Daily Dozens from 2008 & 2014.  National Geographic has the best photographers and experts in the world - they would not accept manipulated photograph.


Best regards,

Malgorzata Walkowska

Shocking that my untrained eye knew within seconds that something was wrong with this photo; the reflection doesn't fit. Thanks to Dave Milliken's comment below I saw that the front row of trees was just enlarged and put into the background, just check out how they match, branch for branch. Having a photoshopped POD makes me wonder what Your Shot's editors were thinking.

Perhaps NG can explain what their intention was in selecting this image(s).

I'm not an artist or photographer but I am disappointed that this was photoshopped. I can see it with my untrained eye. :/ I want to see nature NATURALLY. (With a camera, of course. Heehee)

Beautiful thought, but very poor photo shopping skills!

One of the most obvious Photoshopped photos I've seen.  I can see why it was done, to create a nice arc in the pond.  But so obvious.  You guys should have caught this.

I would have preferred it without the photoshopping. The hazier backline of trees is a larger copy of the frontline. You can tell if you take a close look at the branch patterns. This is the first time I've seen a photoshopped picture on NG!

@Malgorzata Walkowska Yes thanks for the explanation. You can understand how we could jump to the conclusion of photoshopping without the explanation being provided with the photo.

@Kris Walkowski @Sebastian Wahlhuetter alright! agree - I shouldn't have written my comment in this way. it just looked to photoshopped and it wouldn't be the first time that this occurred. Some clarification in the text about the method would have been also helpful. but yeah - over all I take the blame. I was just a bit upset.
