Experimenting with Hi-Key

Today, I started experimenting Hi Key with this composition. But the blue sky vanished and mist came in.

Furthermore, I "simplified" the texture on the lake water and revised the aspect ratio to 8x10 to eliminate extra distraction, while preserving some definition in the sky.

Ultimately, I got sidetracked from the original objective. I became so obsessed to protect the clouds. I previsualized the composition in black and white, which I genuinely believe that from one single exposure (no bracketing) I could to extract the tiny silhouette of Mont Vully.
