...sedation...

Switzerland // Hoengg // 21.9.2003

Another IR-photo from the "Regenerate" series I took at my local chillout spot last September. After looking trough the archives I found this one and thought it was worth submitting.
For technical and general informations about this piece/place check out regenerate and regenerate II

Sedation

Sometimes it takes time to recognize the aesthetic aspect of life. Stop
dead in your tracks and breathe in deep. A leaf waving invitingly in the
warm summer draft. Come on friend, rest some after an exhausting day,
taste the sweet relief. Put aside your worries, charge on nature.
Regenerate yourself. That‚s what I think.

Sometimes it takes time to accept the aesthetic aspect of life. Sit
down, light up and hang out for a while. I know, it's hard to take all
too often. The crystal clear sky so overwhelming, so overpowering. The
magnificence of the world around you turning into a painting by Dali.
Complete with dripping clocks with the seconds dancing by. The smell of
upcoming rain.

Sometimes it takes time to remember the aesthetic aspect of life. It's
minutes like these that make life worth living - maybe it's just an
enchantment of everyday routine. Yet still, through its beauty in
untouchable form, it cramps my style. Its apparent bliss makes me nervous.
We can't stop the wheels from turning and maybe, I think with a smile on
my face, maybe that's the great thing about it. Minutes, hours, weeks -
all moving into the perpetual. Perhaps the point is just to sit here and
think about it.

I really like the leaves of the trees, they almost seem kind of pink the way they were captured despite that they aren't. The tree itself adds in a nice element of shading and contrast which ties nicely in with the dark colour of the bench and (your?) pants. The type of emotion I derive from this is sadness yet in a beautiful sort of way. A boy could be so sad in such a beautiful world, which makes one wonder, what torments him so. My only critique for you would be to add in a slight bit of contrast, the sky seems a little washed out compared to the grass and plants. This is a touching piece, and very well composed.

Great work :)

Masterfully composed with the man and the tree. IR is just awesome and everytime I see a shot like this I getting misty because I can't use filters with my own camera :tears:

Such stillness with the resting pose and the tree in the foreground and with the trees in the background it becomes almost three dimentional. IR suits the mood funny how it really enhance the mood the photo portraits. Saw *x-horizon with his battlefield photo that were cold and threating because the IR enhanced that feeling. Such a godlike filter :)

I really enjoy reading your poetry rather than the actual photos itself. The way you interpret life and that we should never take granted of it in every minute of our life. Even if we have our ups and downs, it's just how life works, we move on and we adapt from it.
I truly love your poem.

Hehe, it's not written by Yves. I'm just a friend doing him a favor sometimes. If you like this stuff, go see my gallery. It's full of it.

Creative shot, strong composition and overall setup.

Effective editing, and a strong overall emotive quality.

Would've suggested a black border instead of white to help isolate the image and increase photographic contrast.

Overall, great work, as usual.

I really like this shot... with the spacing especially. Usually I find myself trying to figure out how I want things positioned in a work... like if I should use centering, rule of thirds....

This is nicely balanced, though. I also like the soft green hue to it. :D
