In A Tilted World, all I got to do is stay balanced
I use my own weight to push my world into place
I must fight to stay balanced, on top, and in control
Fighting in a tilted world, just so my child could stand straight
30 Seconds exposure, ND filter 110 (10 stops).
About ND filters - Natural Density
ND Filters are like sun glasses that you put on your lens, to help you get less light in the camera. Like sun glasses you are able to select the level of darkness applied on the lens by the thickness of the glass in the filter. Why do you need it? Basically it help Get longer exposures in strong light conditions (up to 10 full stops. The colors are deeper and the effect is usually more surreal. You will need tripod, and the ND filters matching your lens.

With the exposure, the movement of the clouds, and the movement of the person under the tree, I believe you did not need to also add tilt to the shot. Especially such an extreme tilt. Did you also shoot this one with a straight horizon?
I'd love to see this shot with the tree and foreground taking up only about the bottom quarter of the frame, with a large expanse of sky.
I commend you for your attempt!
Keep on posting those shots!

nice composition. It almost feels like a weird scence from some movie. The effect on the clouds and the fuzzy silhouette of the child, makes it more dramatic

Dreamy, wavy, blurry, enchanting. I think u've got it just the way u imagined it. I'm not sure that many people will accept it or understand it because of its unusuallity. That little figure under the tree is so balancing this photo, I can barely notice it's tilted. This experiment works just fine for me, better than fine, just great. I really admire this piece.

Indeed this world is tilted, and we have to watch out in order not to fall with it. This is an inspiring photo (for me at least) which pushes the technique into a more experimental and artistic level, your domain of excellence. Experiments arenít always well accomplished, but this one delivers its content with great expression and harmony. Itís so vivid and pulsating it really doesnít look like ordinary photograph, but some form of illustration. Was that kid in fact still for 30 seconds?!, and with the arms over his head?!

Oh God, it reminds me how much I hate tilted horizons hahaha :-). I must have some kind of tilted-horizons-disorder...
Have a good weekend!

Excellent use with ND grad, making the clouds looking like coton, the combination of the mouvment of the clouds AND the person, contrasting with the stillness of the tree is just perfect, so is the tilt.
