I'm new, so I have'nt seen any of your work until now, Igor. But let me say this, after looking at about 1/3 of your gallery. Quit your day job immediately, fly to D.C. with your portfolio and join the National Geographic Society as a staff photographer. We'll all be a lot happier and you'll get the exposure you deserve! O, by the way, congrats! #1637575

Marc E. Adamus 7/25/2005 3:00:30 PM

Yes, I'll agree with Ken here, being a big fan of your work for quite some time myself. This image peeks my curiosity though. I don't quite understand the tones. The foreground water is easily a couple stops lighter than the sky, but yet there dosen't seem to be any evidence of an ND Grad used. As well it reflects little if any of the warm coloration above. These may be in part due to the water displacement throughout the longer exposure, though I would be intrested to know some of your techniques used here. Furthermore, you had the dynamic range to not fully silhoette the leaves on the tree - something I could never do with slide films. However you made this work, it was worked to perfection. A remarkable shot of tranquil beauty, as are many of yours. #1637612
