For me, it's a monstrous elephant emerging from the mist.

All processing done in Adobe Camera Raw. Three smart objects adjusted individually: foreground, rock face/mist, sky - blended with masks. Tried to separate the elements while maintaining some of the gloom.

And then, the image was so nearly there, a monochrome from the previous, all done in Photoshop. A little cloning and more than a little redistribution of tones.

Thanks for the win! I’m not sure that there were other entries that were better but thanks. The photos with fog or mist are always a good challenge to work on. I have been using the extract detail filter in Nik color Efex to get more from the clouds. I will get a new challenge going in a little while.
