A World In Balance by gilad A World In Balance by gilad

The power of the ocean is soften by the stillness of the land
The lightness of the sky is darkened by the coming of the night
The movement of time is frozen by the capture of the camera


****

30 seconds exposure at Sunset.
Jaffa, Israel

I would write here how much I admire gilads work, but mere words wouldn't be enough to describe how I feel every time I browse through his deviations. I'd :+fav: all of his works if I could :aww:!

Hello gilad! I know you receive a lot of comments and questions but.. hmm.. next March I will spend a week in Israel (a tour in different places) and I'd definitely want to shoot some good photos there (not so sure if I will, all the decent shots I have, are around my own place..).. so I'd like to know if you use any filters on these? HDR? Any other tips? :D

Thanks a lot!!

Again a great shot.. :clap:

I used ND filter that allows 10 stops down. Very effective for these kind of shots.
When in Israel, ket me know if you want to get together and shoot some landscape together ;)

Hehe.. be careful.. I may be on your front door some time soon! ;) Anyway, the tour will be from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, then to Tiberias (Genesaret-area) and we'll also see the Dead Sea.. :) I have to go where the group goes, so I have very little choice where to stop and how much time to spend there.. so I'm not sure if the trip will be very rewarding as it comes to photography! Anyway, I think I will see a lot.. :excited:

Where do you live? :D

When it's not in full view it reminds me of a mountain raising up over the tops of clouds. It makes me think of a spanish fairy tale I heard a long time ago.
