a new wife waiting for the return of "her man" ? The empty space on the river begged for something to come out of the mist.  And if there's going to be a boat, we need someone to be watcing it.

A fairly straight forward composite -- boat is "misted" with a partially visible "fog" layer, foreground model was posed to be leaning on the railing. Attempt was made to try and match the somewhat even lighting in the  original photo, though with sky color it appears most of the fog was lower down and closer to the water, so upper part of sails would be catching brighter light(?)  Ship wake was hand painted, so not the most accurate.
