Road to Heaven

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace. ----- Hell is veiled in delights, and Heaven in hardships and miseries. Heaven lieth at the feet of mothers. He will not enter hell who hath faith equal to a mustard seed in his heart; and he will not enter Paradise who hath a single grain of pride, equal to a mustard seed, in his heart. Paradise is nearer to you than the thongs of your sandals; and the Fire likewise. ----- Narrow is the road and wide is the gate that leads to heaven. Suby "Ars longa, vita brevis"

Nice one Oga Suby, me likes. Love the reflection on the building. Like the composition as well. well done
Interesting picture though I don't see the link between it and your text from Eccl. It looks to contrived to me. smile

Great sky Suby, but I wish the lower half wasnt so dark and dreary.
I like it.

I have a suggestion on an alternative. If you stood further to the right you could have taken the reflection of the clouds in the building in half the frame with the sky in the other half. That's just me though as I tend to avoid people unless they are the focus of the image.

I would have avoided the golden arches in the distance though!

BeakerSt, Sounds Like a good idea, Will try that next time.

MTC, liked the drearyness of earth as opposed to the bright lights and beauty of heaven smile

Jide, oh well, thought the description fit the image.

Ade, thanks smile

Nice, it's very blue... I like the cloud reflections in the glass on the left. Did you tweak the colour to get it this blue, or is it natural? BTW, why shoot at ISO 400 on a sunny day? I don't get that bit.
Going to be abit harsh here so please bear with me.

I think this shot lacks purpose. There is no obvious point of interest in the shot where one should pay attention to. The clouds and lighting lacks drama to play that role. The crowd in the shadows can barely be seen and don't seem very interesting. Anyway, if your intent was to portray some kind of path, ie. "Narrow is the road and wide is the gate that leads to heaven.", then maybe shooting in the evening where the light is warm and flooding the path and perhaps the horizon would be the best time.

The Maven - Yup tweaked the colour (hang head in shame), and honest truth was I forgot to change the ISO when I took the outsode shot
sad Wasn't actually a sunny day when I took the shot.)

Denosha - Didn't want the crowd to be too much in focus. The depravity of earth you see. Nice idea. However if I am ever in that area again, I will give it a try smile

Suby
Don't get me wrong Suby I know it's hard to get it right but you saw something that made you link the two, I just wanted more of an insight.
Just curious where was this image taken? I have an idea for an image with a reflection of the clouds off the glass panes.

Jide,

It was taken in Central Milton Keynes, at the shopping Mall smile
Like the way the clouds reflect in the glass wall.
