Finding Serenity by gilad Finding Serenity by gilad
Floating in the Dead Sea water can be a very calming process.
The high density water allows your body to float endlessly, and in that huge emptyness you clear your thoughts and head.
It's a good way to find Serenity.

I've used the highest ISO possible (1600) to get this grain and high key effect. No PS.
I hope You like it.

Added this one to my Faves. I've always wanted to float in the Dead Sea, and this photo really spoke to that dream. The lack of movement in the water is amazing... serene even. :-)

wow... tell us again how you did it? how do you get that effect? i mean, there's no border between the water and the background. is it just because of high ISO? what were the light conditions in this shot?

Strong sun.
The surroundings are very flat water level and far mountains that are barely noticble anyway, so the higher ISO pulled it off easily

:( I would probably die in that water.
I am allergic to salt water.
But I'll probably try that some day.
Perhaps if I can do something about it.

Amazing idea for how to take the shot. :clap:

The grain is subtle, but works really well. The minimalism style caught my eye, it's rare to see a minimalistic piece outside of a studio. Good work :)
