A couple walking off into the mist created by the Oito Jigoku (hell) hot springs near Nagasaki, Kyushuu, Japan.

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.
