I think it might work better as a B&W, the yellow of the striping is a little distracting from the light at the end of the tunnel look you captured.

Nice image... The only things that I would do, if it were my image, are add a little vibrace & saturation to the yellow line... I believe this would aid in a convergence point... Second, I would mask & blur the brighter light, upper left... It, to me, is in competition... Jim

Thank you gentlemen

When the boss gets home she will make the final decision.

I love the mood of the fog and low-ish sun angle!

Post processing variations to consider:

1 - Darken foreground yo enhance the mood of foreboding.

2 - Perhaps alter the color balance to make it more neutral, or perhaps very slightly bluish if you are going for spooky rather than nostalgic.

3 - Use a noise reduction to make the fog creamier, or go the other way and add slight but more obvious grain. Either method can be compelling, but in different ways. Smoother can look more natural. Grainier harkens to our visual experience with moody film renditions.

4 - Perhaps a wee bit of clockwise rotation.

5 - In the end, always defer to whoever prepares your food when you aren't watching.

Thank you, thank you, thank you

I have taken you advice and will spring it on the boss when she walks in my lair.

Very nice capture!! One thing that I notice though, is a slight lens flair in the upper left from the light source. It drew my eyes pretty easily. (Perhaps that's even the Sun trying to peek through?? I'd still clone it out).

Robert, I think I will leave the Sun in, but I appreciate the critique.

Karen, the first update is from LR4 and the second is a crop.

Thanks again

Fine image. Great mood, choice of POV, nice job with a difficult exposure.
Beautiful tune-up by Karen.
I prefer the first of your just added reworks.

Wonderful image and variations - well seen!

At first look, I think I prefer the next to last variation, for whatever that is worth
