Bitter End by gilad Bitter End by gilad

It started out just like every other day, but some far empire decided this is D day
The world began changing right in front of my eyes. What use to be life, crawled up and died
I'm an angel, but now I'm unable to fly, watching the ground, this tree, the sky.
I'm fighting for air, while loosing my faith, climbing back to the sky, and crashing through space

The breakdown has started with this tear in my wings, but the restoration is near, and will begin with only four things. The ground, a tree and sky, and a powerful spirit simply fighting to fly.


*****

Camera: Nikon D70
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm
Filter: Hoya R72 (Infra Red)
Infra Red
Exposure Time = 1/3"
F Number = F4
Exposure Program = Manual
Metering Mode = CenterWeightedAverage
Focal Length = 10mm

This time I decided not to change the channels blue, like I usually do with IR shots.
Something in the original brown seemed more powerful.
So this is straight from the camera.

Ramat Gan, Israel

I actually prefer the -out of camera- versions of IR pictures, The false coloured ones are a bit more boring i think :)

This is something to remember. A great and memorable addition to beauty within.
Some people say a picture is worth a thousand words. I believe there is no ammount of words to descibe
true beauty and composition. Detail in it's truest form; lies not in thy heart but in thine eyes.
The detail and it's memorable captions, reminds people of what life looks like, and can feel the pure ingenuity
and imagination like the innocence of a child. I applaud to this moment and commend the effort.
Impressed is not enough to describe the shock and sometimes awe that sometimes, somewhere,
someone finds their selves deep within a beautiful experience. So I leave you know with a :clap: standing
ovation and give you only one piece of advise. Stay true, stay well, and never give up.

We must overcome the notion that we must be regular... it robs you of the chance to be extraordinary and leads you to the mediocre.

Not many artists is paying enough attention to the title of their creations.

But not you, and this picture is briliantly wrapped with its title - awesome. Awesome.

this is very beautiful.
i love how you used sepia tones mixed in with the imagery of black and white.
i never would have thought of putting the 2 together.
it clashes, but matches at that same time.
wonderful :)
