It was a misty autumn morning near the Vistula River in Krakow, Poland. This day I had decided to set off for work early with the intention to photograph on the way. Strolling on the bank of the river, I suddenly spotted a group of rowers heading towards.
Series consist of cloudscapes, structures and forms of clouds and light, which resemble in this series something which look like mythical dragons, dragon's snouts, dragon's fire and skin. Signs are everywhere, some apparent, common, boring, on the roads - so overwatched that invisible. There are sings which come from totally different order, too - something beyond us, something above us.
Signs in The Sky series consist of photographs with shapes and structures created mostly by clouds in the sky. There are legendary and fantasy-theme shapes, animal-like shapes, people-like shapes, faces, letters, numbers, objects which look like some, which we know from everyday life.
Except some background bokeh added in software (on some photos only) any modifications are made in photographs.
In one old dictionary of symbols we may read: Cloud is symbolic of forms as phenomena and appearance, always in a state of metamorphosis, which obscure the immutable quality of Truth. Hence the fact that ancient Christian symbolism interprets the cloud as synonymous with the prophet.
This 10 photographs present shapes, which may be interpretate as dragon - like, dragon - snout close-ups, fire dragons, even dragon rider.
- Рейтинг фотографов по странам и городам строится на основе 3-х лучших фотографий автора и их относительной позиции в каждой отдельной номинации. Рейтинг в номинации "Мобильная фотография" учитывается в меньшей степени для формирования рейтинга. В списке показывается одна фотография автора с лучшим рейтингом.
- В списке опубликованы только работы которые прошли 2-й этап голосования.
- The rating of photographers by countries and cities is based on the three best photos of the author and their relative position in each separate nomination. Rating in the nomination "Mobile Photography" is taken into account to a lesser extent for rating formation. The list shows one photo of the author with the best rating.
- Only those photos have been published in the list that passed the second stage of voting.
More recently, we have made an improvement and now we have a new feature - "Series uploading." Even now, you can download from 3 to 10 photos in the series, united by a common idea. Voting for the series will take place separately from other series in their nominations. vote principle remains the same as for single photos. At the moment, series uploading is available for nominations: "Children's Photography", "Wild Animals", "Staged Photography" and "Reportage photo". This feature is available for any improved account.
