"ישֵׁב בְּסֵתֶר עֶלְיוֹן בְּצֵל שַׁדַּי יִתְלוֹנָן: אֹמַר לַיְיָ מַחְסִי וּמְצוּדָתִי אֱלֹהַי אֶבְטַח בּוֹ: כִּי הוּא יַצִּילְךָ מִפַּח יָקוּשׁ מִדֶּבֶר הַוּוֹת: בְּאֶבְרָתוֹ יָסֶךְ לָך וְתַחַת כְּנָפָיו תֶּחְסֶה צִנָּה..."

A shot from "PINE TRAILS" - my first photo shoot as a photographer and art director. I had my good, and stunningly handsome friend Nick to model for me on this one! I hope you'll like it!

this is an amazing shot where we can see a beautiful contrast between the background and the subject it's truly is brilliant and well done i love the angle of the photo and the framing . the pose of the model shows beauty and strength collided. Now if you push your mind further in you might see a message here. in a way this photo could represent the ampleness of society, or the pressure it carries upon us.
These are two out of many interpretations you could make of this work feel free to have your own either way we can all obviously see and agree that in this photo we see beauty strength and talent it's a
good work: a work of art, that pushes the mind further and beyond.
What do you think?

This is simply fantastic! The church and the guy and the ankle you are taking the picture.
Just Perfect!

The perspective is really nice. It sort of makes you look up at his face and at the top of the cathedral.

I like the dynamic pose of the model as contrast to the steady, straight and strict architecture of the building. It adds movement, life and perspective and makes this piece very vivid.

Very moody and dark. Great shot!

I like the classic feel to this one. Almost like an homage to the old statues.
