"Let's go home little brother.. the rain will down very soon.. look at the sky.. the cloud is getting dark and darker.."
A photograph taken in Masceti beach in Gianyar, during melasti ceremony.. while their parents pray, the kids usually playing around.. including them.
When I saw them standing in the top of a rock, as the ceremony itself took place on a beach, and one child pointed his hand to the sky, so I decided to captured them on the frame. I really love the texture of the sky on the background..
I hope you like it.

Simply Yoga? - Simply Awesome...
I have to admit, seldom do we see shots that look as impressive full size as they look in the thumbs- but this one is by far an exception Yoga...
Obviously some PP work has been done- but so well that there are no flaws. Excellent composition, levels, tones, colors, etc etc etc...
Hats off to you...

Excelente foto, la composición me gusta mucho, y el cariño que se ve en los hermanos agarrados de la mano uno cuidando del otro, excelente.

Hi Yoga... this is simply fantastic.. looks like a picture taken from a movie or something like that...

This photo is amazing, the dark sky and both kids pointing into the sky. It looks like the light on the kids is man made.

Simply brilliant. Great composition, captured the moment and very well presented. I can see a hint of a cyan colour cast in their clothes, a little photoshop should fix that.
sowhat (1004) 2007-06-13 10:57
wonderful picture, movie-like, I love the storm colors, the beautiful sky and the light appearance of the boys. Excellent overall effect.
Thanks for sharing,

A beautiful, dramatic composition. The colors and lighting are superb as well! Well done!
Out of curiosity, what was the source of light on the children? What time of the day was the photo taken? Very nice depth for f/4.5 too.
hookery (621) 2007-06-13 11:09
Que foto increible!! el efecto de iluminación es muy bueno (aunque los niños estan ligeramente sobre expuestos) gran dramatismo.
teutza (10590) 2007-06-13 11:34

Hi Yoga, this is an amazing image. Looks quite like a montage. Great job. Great lightning. Best wishes, Nino.

You certainly don’t deserved any comments or critiques, as you don’t implicate yourself on this site, otherwise than showing your own photos. It’s purely egoist and you should simply open your own website and show off your photos in your typical self-absorbed way. I’ve never understood your presence here, although you were one of the first I’ve put in my favorites when I arrived here.
But I can’t pass-by and not letting you know how much this shot is extremely impressive. I thought at first that it was staged, but reading your note, I have to admit that it’s possible that these kids adopt this position by themselves. The light is absolutely divine, or rather surrealist. And just like you, I really love the clouds formation. Unbelievable.
Too bad you’re only on this site to squat your images.
19 critiques since the beginning of 2007! 3 per month !!! That aint bad at all!!
All TE members are very grateful to your implication. When I read your intro, asking people to comments your images, I wish this invitation applies to you as well !!!

Hi Yoga, excellent composition, framing and colors. Well done. TFS, Michael
atlantida (2323) 2007-06-13 13:05
This is really something, the most amazing, dramatic sky I've ever seen..if u were setting up the scene, u wouldn't get a scene like this, this happens once in a long time. I was also wandering where is that light on the boys coming from? This is really incredible, it leaves me speechless. The colors are very strong.
konok (2068) 2007-06-13 13:40
Well, it is symply amazing - and has so special atmosphere.
flpanthers1 (108) 2007-06-13 13:43
That is so awesome!!!!!! unbelievable capture. I don't know what else to say, what a shot.
jvivar (58) 2007-06-13 15:15
This looks almost as an studio picture, but it is not!
I like the sharp image of the boys superposed on the difuse of the clouds. Very nice shot!
Uzi (1240) 2007-06-13 16:10

Beatiful photograph. Light, DOF and composition is great. Greetings. Regards
kedarvideo (106) 2007-06-14 16:00
Yes, I like it a lot. Beautiful composition and lighting. It is nearly a black and white motive with some fine colouring.
tehanu_f (6896) 2007-06-14 16:35
I checked your gallery almost everyday to see whether you posted a new photo. Just like your melasti ceremony series, this is also stunningly beautiful, highly professional and impressive. So are your light management and composition. You are a true artist.
Jeppo (17645) 2007-06-17 14:41
I do agree with Tenahu. this is not just a photo, that's art!

rossofuoco (7395) 2007-09-14 3:16
Hi Yoga. Non so a quale dare i punti perchè sono tutte veramente belle. Incredibile la nitidezza e la profondità di campo. E' un tuo segreto o potresti condividerlo con me? che metodo usi?
Seb82 (2467) 2007-10-02 13:19
Excellent shot!! really impressive!
i like the POV , and the effect of clouds!
also a beautiful light and great colours!
hantulaut (3441) 2007-12-29 16:26
a decent and crisp image
wawa (692) 2008-02-17 7:46
Stances are just like in 1950 propaganda photos for the Chinese or Soviet communist Party.
Is it "Stand up for your future" or "look there's a big cloud coming with a lot of rain".
Beautiful composition. The sky is incredible
Thumbs up for this shot and all of your gallery.
arnabchat (7233) 2008-02-27 2:40
Yoga, i missed your shots for a while.
this one is just too good.... the color tones give a commercial advt feel while the image gives a cinematic feel.
greetings from Trieste,
veronika (6058) 2008-03-20 13:39

CLODO (33864) 2012-06-15 2:38
On croirait une peinture à l'huile. Belle idée bien traduite, avec ce côté dynamique créé par la posture penchée des 2 enfants et leur geste vers le ciel chargé.
