hi i'm making a trading card game and i was wondering if i could use this drawing for a card i will give credit where it is deserved and plus its a easy way to spread your art plus you can still use them for your project the card game is called Paragon Galaxy the concept is a galaxy built where all these worlds exist for the perfect galaxy . The galaxy will grow and grow until this perfection is formed

An appropriately mysterious capture with a great weight of composition and tone.

I really love the concept of this shot; it has a very eerie...ghost-like surrealness to it. Like you don't know if they'll ever come back from where they're going.
That being said, I think it's entirely necessary for them to be blurred out, but when I look at them, I feel like they're strobing, the shadows are almost too visible. I think if you maybe faded them out a little bit more by keeping them "together" so to speak (if you see what I mean, it looks like the image of them was pulled and pieces of them were left behind, which almost suggests speed, not fading), and then a low opacity overlay of the color of the surroundings were put on top of them, to make you almost have to squint to see them, I think that would work more.
the contrast between the path and the blended gray tones in the background work so well though; really nice image overall :clap:

Its not a very edited pic, the people were simply walking off into the fog, so blurring them more I think would look unnatural. But I can understand that they would look more ghost-like.

The way you have them disappear into the steam/mist as if they were part of it...spirits, indeed. A fitting concept.

Thanks, it was a bit of a fluke to take, there weren't many people around, pretty lucky that I would pass even a single person, let alone a couple.

Good timing and you nailed the shutter speed there, just enough for the motion blur. Good choice with BW too.

Went to one of these places last week in Hakone. There were so many signs about poisonous gas. I didn't really want to hang around to take photos..
