I like this wisp on the horizon of this shot. It reminds me of of the Man in Black from the recently finished TV Series - LOST.

The Man in Black, also known as the Monster or the Black Smoke, is a force on the Island and is one of the main antagonists of the series. In season one, he kills the pilot of Oceanic 815. His avatars include Jacob's twin brother, Jack's father Christian, and John Locke. He cannot leave the island as long as Jacob or one of his successors is still on the island and we are told that if he does leave the island, everyone on earth will die. He first appears as a cloud of black smoke, but can apparently take on the appearance of anyone who is dead. In his Locke avatar, which we are told he cannot now change, he takes offense when Ben calls him a Monster. He claims that he is not evil, and just wants to escape the island. But he is certainly a manipulative liar and a merciless killer. According to Rousseau and Ben, the Man in Black (in his Monster form) serves as a security system and judge to the Island. He has limitations. He cannot penetrate the DHARMA sonar fence, go through the ash which surrounds Jacob's cabin, or enter the temple while a guardian is alive. He cannot personally kill Jacob or any of the candidates chosen by Jacob to succeed him. He manipulates Ben, by impersonating Locke and Ben's daughter, and eventually convinces Ben to kill Jacob.

Landscape calibration, curves, punch, grad for sky, soft light.

Tools

I noticed on Patrick Smith's stream that he shares some great little applications and tools to assist with Landscapes, so here's a few I can recommend to use:

Tides/Sunrise/Sunset - Willy Weather
Predicting Sunrise/Sunset/Moonrise/Moonrise - The Photographers Empheris
3 Hourly Forecast predictions - WeatherZone
