Ongoing CHALLENGE !!!

If your picture has been blogged here, it means that it has appealed to over 300 art jurors (currently 50 active) for a whole week or more. That is an achievement!!!

... and what does that mean ??? well according to This ... it means your picture is "... extremely resistant to people wanting to get rid of it", :)

If you see one single picture in this group that you think is not art, please say so (by commenting on it) and tell us why. If you are convincing - we will remove it. This group is to show case the most resistive pictures from the
B&W Art Photography - Is Your Art universal

Why should I be frightened of dying?

And I am not frightened of dying, any time will do, I don't mind. Why should I be frightened of dying?
There's no reason for it, you've gotta go sometime. I never said I was frightened of dying.

The bridge modelling for BMW's worldwide press release...
This is one of the photos BMW has used to launch their new BMW 6 series concept coupe in their worldwide press release in September 2010. Click here for the BMW press release and the photos by BMW.

Also part of a series that earned me 2nd place in 2010 International Photography Awards (IPA 2010) in the category bridges.

I've recently found out that there were some discussions on Internet forums about photographing architecture. They basically claim that photographing architecture like bridges is simply plagiarism and absolutely no art since it disregards the 'real' artist, being the architect. I guess these guys really don't know what art and photography is all about. Does it really matter what your subject is in photographic art? What matters is HOW you capture it that defines if it is art or not...

I went back to the bridge. There was a thick fog. Although I calculated an exposure time of 256 seconds, I decided during the shot to double the exposure time since it was getting darker relatively fast. It turned out well.

I saw a Michael Kenna video very recently in which you could see the master at work in Japan, shooting his famous trees in the snow. And Michael Kenna hugged the tree just to get connected with the tree. So I've decided to give this bridge a big hug. I don't know if he likes me now, but I love this bridge anyway...

Technical info:
ND110 - 10 stops.
18 mm
512s (8min32s) exposure

While, white horses,
They will take me away,
And the tenderness I feel,
Will send the dark underneath,
Will I follow?"

No longer afraid of the dark

Year's End 2010 (the first page/recapitulate)

The wall debuted in 2008, was recalculated in 2009 and in 2010 I do not know if this is memory of the beginning (the first page) or recapitulation at the end. In any case I am hopeful this is the last time the services of the wall of pages will be required.
