Dark Clouds Ahead by gilad Dark Clouds Ahead by gilad

Bad days to come
And there is nowhere to go
I will be stairing at the sun
In the days I will never know.

Don't be fooled by these quiet times
It is the noise of a dying heart
A storm is coming soon
Be sure I will play my part

Bad days to come
Dark clouds ahead
Soon I'll stop loving you
Soon I will be dead.



****

10 seconds exposure.
Tel Aviv beach, Israel

I really like this shot for many reasons. Firstly, the tones and exposure are spot on. Secondly, the use of filters to capture the darkness of the clouds while retaining the highlights in the sky was very well executed as well.

The compositions symmetry works very well throughout the frame though I am a bit distracted by the lower part of the frame where the rock seems to deviate a bit and the slight lack of balance between earth and sky. Perhaps by changing the angle by panning up a bit to include more sky and less of the rock platform the frame would be more balanced in 1/3's and give a stonger presentation.

All in all it is a great work with sublime textures and an abstract quality that would make a very nice fine art print. Well done.

Firstly to critique some of your work is necessary to see your gallery and admire the quality of them.

This photo “for me” has some good and bad thinks.

In the bad thinks I found the stone to take up nearly the 50% of the photo, and although the texture is incredible defined the stone don't say nothing, I cut the photo down to the stone radius and center a bit more the stone in the frame.
The sky is so unreal, is like a negative of a sky, I don't know if the conversion to b&w create these black clouds, but I don't like it.

In the other hand the photo transmit peace and a sense of unease at the same time.
This photo spur to follow on these blur columns to the infinite, but when you arrive at the end you found the dark, "Bad days to come".

Your words to comments on are much appreciated and emphasize the photo.

Good work.Note: If you like my critique, please do the same with one of my photos ;)

Primero para criticar tu trabajo es necesario ver tu obra antes y admirar la calidad de la misma.

Esta foto “;para mi” tiene puntos negativos y positivos.

En la parte negativa encuentro que la roca ocupa mas del 50% de la foto, y aunque la textura de la misma está increíblemente bien definida a mi no me dice nada, yo cortaría la foto por abajo hasta tocar casi con el radio de la roca además de centrarla un poco más.
El cielo es irreal, parece como si lo hubieras negativizado, no se si ha sido la conversión al b&n lo que a creado esas nubes negras, pero no me gustan.

Por otro lado la foto transmite paz e intranquilidad al mismo tiempo.
La foto te empuja a seguir las columnas metidas en la niebla hasta el infinito, pero cuando llegas al final encuentras la oscuridad, “Días malos por venir”.

Buen trabajo.

Nota: Si te ha gustado mi comentario, por favor comenta una de mis fotos ;)
