Under the Dome by gilad Under the Dome by gilad
It was one of those sunsets, that leaves you with a strong belief in god.
When man seem to have no power over his destiny, over his doom.
When the sky can break down on him without loosing a tear.
When all you can do is just pray that god is good.


****

Tel Baruch, Tel Aviv. Israel.
I should say that there is no photoshop or manipulation. Just WB settings.
The WB is set to higher tempreture and I used a Grad ND filter ot the lower side of the frame.
Sigma 10-20mm
G

One thing that is annoying me slightly about this piece is the extreme distortion... pretty obvious

I love it, especially the rays of sun that are peeking through the clouds. The colors are also great. What does the Grad ND filter do?

It allows londer exposure, but in this case it was used mainly for the color it adds

Breathless. The elements of the sun are passing through the powerfull clouds so strong and intense. The position of the fisher man is quite funny too.....seems like he is swinging forward.
