Made this image during the CNP Meet. I liked the separation in the image and thought that in B&W it represented much better than color. Welcome your views, thanks, Vikram.

Vikram, How about cropping off the top 1/3 to reduce the state space? Black in the frame doesn't seem to add value. Just retain it from the pixels where the mist just seems to disappear. The sticks can take a but more of sharpness I believe.

A moody frame here Vikram. I think couple of things may improve this further. I am not sure whether pano-crop here adds. I would consider loosing a few pixels at the left side of the frame and also straighten the horizon. One thing I realized is adding grains while processing on very high resolution displays (say 27") may make grains appear larger on lower resolution display (similarly look over sharpened on lower resolution displays). I think this one seem to have grains a bit bigger in size as seen on my laptop. I have seen the same issue with my recently posted rhino image. Grains appear a bit larger on lower resolution display which kind of affects the original intended mood that we want to create.

Hi Vikram, Nice one. The smoothness of tones is critical in this type of shot (IMHO) seems to me the mid level tones are bit patchy. Was the light like that ?

Art is about what is inside rather than what is outside

@ Pramod - Thanks for the input, I will try to post one by cropping the top.

@ Ganesh - Thanks Ganesh for the insight into pixles. I never realized this issue. May be I will rework and post another, perhaps a color image.

@ Rajkumar - Thanks for the feedback. It was early morning shot in the Lake and shot at at high ISO.
