From the steamy seas by gilad From the steamy seas by gilad
LOOK at my knees,
That island rising from the steamy seas!
The candles a tall lightship; my two hands
Are boats and barges anchored to the sands,
With mighty cliffs all round;
They’re full of wine and riches from far lands….
I wonder what it feels like to be drowned?

I Wonder What it Feels Like to be Drowned? / Robert Graves


****

This is the first time I say this:
Watch in small view, since the large view may be too much for the browser (it's meant to be downloaded as a wallpaper).

Tel Baruch, Tel Aviv. Israel.
I was standing up to my belt in water for this one.
You can check that with ~israelfi if you don't believe me :D
I hope you will enjoy this Wallpaper version.

Sigma 10-20mm with as much ND filter as I could on top of it to get the long exposure effect.
25 Seconds exposure with 64ND + 8ND on top of it.

Just a few words on ND filter before the questions starts coming (and they will...)
ND stands for "Neutral Density"
When it is desirable to obtain proper exposure when confronted with too much light intensity, you can use a Neutral Density (ND) filter. This will absorb light evenly throughout the visible spectrum, effectively altering exposure without requiring a change in lens opening and without introducing a color shift. A Neutral Density filter reduces the amount of light passing through the camera lens without changing the color of the scene. It is especially useful in bright light conditions to help prevent overexposure. The neutral density filter also allows proper exposure at a wider lens opening for reduce depth-of-field to highlight a key subject by making the foreground and/or background out of focus.

The Neutral Density filter also allows shutter speeds to produce blurred motion effects, as I did in this picture.
OK, enough on that :)

Absolutely gorgeous shot here. I can't quite make out where land ends and water begins, but I like that. It makes it feel oddly unknown, like a summary of an adventure, but you can't give away all the spoilers. The sky compliments this shot as well. Great job.
