Your version is a much better picture. I doubt that I'd have ever gotten there myself, since what interested me was the mass of unfocused color simulating impressionism. However, there was simply not enough color, and/or variety of color to make that approach yield much. Maybe a brighter foggy day in autumn, should I live so long. And not least, these comments have clarified in my mind what my goal actually was.
I'd like to accept Bruce's credit, but unfortunately the record is there for everyone to see. I'm always honest when there's a high likelihood of getting caught.
