On a recent foggy morning, I went to a nearby park, hoping to take some interesting pictures. One of my targets was the Venus Temple, an observation platform on a small lake island. The fog was so dense that I could barely see the other side of the lake. The initial JPEG preview was unusable, and I almost deleted the photo. It turns out, there was enough information within the RAW file to rescue it with some photo editing. I like the final result, especially the dreamy atmosphere.
