    Strengths:
    Fascinating texture effect; lovely rich tones; interesting silhouettes suggesting a story.
    Suggestions:
    I get more of a sense of shadows on a wall than fog in this image. For the fog theme, perhaps a different texture effect would create a greater sense of fog.
    Response:
    Thanks ... the original was faded silhouettes in the fog (so probably would have looked better for the theme in this particular case). Wanted to play with some of the topaz effects this time, so added watercolour paint and crackled texture to the image.

    Strengths:
    Bold colour and the power of the vertical lines.
    Suggestions:
    Effective post production filter applied but the effect (cracked look) detracts from the thought of the soft gentle fog.
    Response:
    Fair enough comment about the crackled texture ... though in this case I was after idea of an old painting about someone trying to paint a foggy scene.

    Strengths:
    The warm colours and the yellow globe draw me in. The left has the mystery of an old ship and on the right, well, thanks for the title.
    Suggestions:
    The texture is interesting, but I'm not sure it adds anything to this already quite interesting image.
