With this image I have chosen a high-contrast daggeurreotype treatment. As I worked on it this seemed to fit, just reducing the image to black and white lines. When you increase the contrast like this, the fog just melts away - which can be good and bad. You lose the atmospherics of the fog, but you gain the high contrast image. And because of the fog the original image has very little information in it other than the tree, which makes for a clean end result.
