Eternal Escapism by Inebriantia Eternal Escapism by Inebriantia
Eternal Escapism



I just simply needed to submit this one...


Wondering where does this endless intrinsic feeling of loneliness come from.... Even when it doesn't make sense.

Wondering about the persistence of scars brought from the youth... Even when they look healed.

Wondering about the need for eternal escapism...





José Ramos
_______________
Ferragudo - Algarve - Portugal

Pentax K10d + Sigma 10-20
3 stop ND Grad filter
Warming Grad filter
Manfrotto tripod + head
Shutter release

ISO-100
Aperture-f9,5
Exposure- 1/8th second

Post-processing - levels, colour balance, saturation, local contrast enhancement, final sharpening.

    You don't reply to some comments, but I'll write to you anyhow: the photo is beautifully warm and technically perfect, imho. The composition is great: it leads my eye from the rocks in the front to the person standing in the middle, and to the silhouette of the city, and back again. No confusion here - it has a story of it's own. Well done! :clap:

    Thanks for the comment dear. Even if I don't reply to some comments, I do read 100% of them, and cherish each one. Unfortunately physical time doesn't extend beyond its limits, and I can't cope with all the messages I get.

    Loved your detailed input. :love:

    I know that you don't have time for all of them, it's impossible to make time for every one of them.
    But I really like the photo and it deserves a comment ;)
