Gilad's Journal

Hi there,
First, I want to share with all of you the new home site of a great member in our DA community. Check out for the Roie Galitz (RoieG) for his gallery, but even better - for a lot of articles on photography, aimed to make it as simple as it gets for beginners. It's great!

Now, I invite you to take a look with me, at 10 of my favorites Under my weekly spotlight

Gilad's Journal

Freedom is such a great title for this one. The sense of open beach, hint of clouds reflection, running through the air... this transfers the feeling like a painter's brish, like a poet's lyrics. Very moving to sea work as simple, and yet brilliant, as that.

Projections II. by meandthesun

What a great frame this is. Sexy, and yet only suggestive.
When you hear someone refers to "ARTISTIC NUDE", think of this one.

playing... by pace067

Parallel World in Infra red. The strange colors add so much surreal to this already great frame. Usually I'm not a big fan of how people urn out in IR, but this one showed me I should open up to new options.

Police Funk by emrerende

Great street shot. Good portrait with a twist. I just love this scene. It shows the street while "looking it in the eyes".

Great expression coming through this.
The falling snow, the silhouette, the distent city, the dramatic B&W. Bravo!

I just love running through the thoughts of the photographer in this scene. "Wow.. I wish they wouldn't move... I'm so lucky... The colors... They are all looking away... I'm so lucky... I am king of the world!"
Do you know what I mean?

It's amazing to see how much beauty and quality is passed un-noticed here in all one week. I hope that more great work will get noticed here. It's up to us. Use the comments favorites power to support the un-noticed.

Keep supporting!

I agree greatly with what you said about "Projections II," being "artistic nude." too much is posted on here that is labeled as such but is closer to smut.
