Souls in line by gilad Souls in line by gilad
I take a deep zip of air
It tastes the same, only colder
My soul is standing in line
Waiting for the white curtain to rise

The one before me seems to be in a hurry
Like time has some sort of a meaning here
Well, I guess habits are hard to break
Even when everything is different

I guess I have all the time in the world
This one and the next
I just wonder what it will be like
At the end of the line, for me.

I'm very happy about this contest.
Surreal photography is my greatest passion.
The use of shadows, reflections, Infra Red, panning techniques...
The mind can go free in this world, to portray an alternative one.

This shot was taken at 3:00AM at the old city of Jerusalem, on the night of Yom Kipur.
The atmosphere that night, walking the streets was surreal, so easily enough, this is what I was photographing.
What you see is actually people climbing the stairs to a roof top, but while they were walking I was panning them, and gave to strokes of soft flash to get small freeze in the frame, and allow the 'ghost' like figures.

I love this shot, and I hope you will like it too.

BTW
There are FANTASTIC submittions to this contest.
You have to check it out - outstanding stuff!
Here are a few - Towards the Moon , The Circle , i dont want to fall. Check it out!

I absolutely love this picture- concept and all. I've been browsing your work and I have to say, one thing I especially like about it (besides your amazing photography) is how you share your techniques, how you took the picture, what lense you used etc.

For someone like me who is just starting to get into photography (and have to learn everything from the internet as I am unable to go to any photography school right now) it's very nice to have someone who's not so secretive about how they were able to capture such an amazing picture. It really helps to give ideas and to learn more about photography. Thanks!!
