Explore the Elements Photo Contest

This is my entry for Thomas Cook’s Photo Contest. You can see all the details by clicking here. It’s a pretty cool contest and although I know my chances of winning are pretty slim it couldn’t hurt submitting my entry 🙂

Earth

Represents the hard, solid objects of the earth Associated with stubbornness, collectiveness , physicality and gravity.

This shot was taken at Sapa Valley, located at the north of Vietnam during a day trekking trip I took while I was there. The rice fields that cover all the mountain slopes is truly a remarkable sight.

Earth

Fire

Represents the energetic, forceful, moving things in the world Associated with security, motivation, desire, intention, and an outgoing spirit.

This shot was taken in Vang Vieng, Laos. This is actually the very first shot I took that I was really proud of when I saw the final result in Lightroom. I only bought my Sony NEX-7 camera a few days before getting to this spot and it is the first great photo (in my opinion at least ;)) that I got out my little Sony.

Fire

Water

Represents the fluid, flowing, formless things in the world Associated with emotion, defensiveness, adaptability, flexibility, suppleness, and magnetism.

This shot was taken in Tel Aviv, Israel from a small and broken pier on the beach, a little bit to the north of Jaffa port. We don’t get too many of these kind of sunsets in Israel but when we do, they do fill up the sky with amazing colors and I was very lucky to be at the right place at the right time.

Water

 

Air

Represents things that grow, expand, and enjoy freedom of movement Associated with will, elusiveness, evasiveness, benevolence, compassion, and wisdom.

This shot was taken at the Tel Aviv port. I used an ND filter to get a long exposure so I could make the water more silky and stretch the clouds a little to give the sense of movement to the scene.
