Photographer's Note

I was on a cruise leaving from Whittier, AK and on our way out of port I was on deck taking as many photos as I could of the eerie fog and the way it clung to the mountains and hovered over the water. The building in the photo is The Inn At Whittier.

Would appreciate feedback on lighting and exposure. I was trying to match the gloomy, eerie feeling of the shot and to bring out the light reflection in the water, but not sure if I took it too far.

Whittier only has a little over 200 permanent residents (almost all of whom live in a single apartment style building in town), but more than 700,000 people visit it each year due to it being the main cruise port because of it's proximity to the Prince William Sound. The city itself, has a long historical heritage especially as a major US Army port beginning in WWII.

Interesting side note, there is only 1 way into and out of Whittier by land... thru the long Anton Anderson Memorial Tunnel. The tunnel is the longest in North America at 2.5 miles and it only allows 1 way traffic so you have to wait for your side's turn to drive thru and shuts it down each day at a certain time depending on the time of year.
