Contemplate by gilad Contemplate by gilad

Nothing is more rewarding than to sit in the shade, let the wind stroke your face and contemplate other people's problems, and while you feel the deep sense of grief and loss for others, your life will always seem to smile upon you.

That's cynicism, and it's the basic rule of getting perspective on life.
After all, you need some cynicism to be optimistic going through life knowing death is coming your way, no matter what you do.

Volfson park in Ramat Gan.
Sigma 10-20mm + Infra Red filter (Hoya R72).
I wanted the low angle to clear the back frame of all the houses behind that small hill. It worked.

Oh, man :(
I was kind of proud about my "Relax" infrared ([link] just for fun) until I saw this.
This is just a dream really, most of your deviations is what I call dreamscapes, not many people can achieve what you do: capture pictures of a surreal reality. And this takes much more than an expensive camera, it takes imagination. No amount of money can buy that. :)

I absolutely ADORE your infra red work!! I don't know how you managed to do it, but you made Ramat Gan look even more beautiful than it already is!

did you use any flashes or extra lighting for this shot? if not, then how did you light up the tree?

You're trying to examine this one like regular photography but it's not. It was done with an Infra Red filter [link]

no i understand it was done with a infra red filter but i fail to see how the lighting was done on the tree. was it natural light at the perfect position? at about dusk because your appeture was open and the shutter was still at 1/3.

All natural. Flash of artificial light has no effect in Infra Red

We all hope to capture a little piece of the beauty set before us in our own little ways. Photography truly is the gift of the master trades.

As I draw the world around me, your world stays static in a suspension of colors and voiceless words. The photo can be mightier than the pencil.

Great work. :clap:

Love and Luck,
Kat
