Alone in the Bhagavad

I feel like I end up walking alone through the epic book of the Bhagavad Gita. These mythical places are made manifest in unexpected ways as I look around. It feels somewhat empty inside, like it needs to be shared with someone. The only devastated remnants I have are these little pictures, which seem a poor substitute.

Alone in the Bhagavad

  • Your “little pictures” seem to be very evocative of the places you visit. I know that now, when I look at recent pictures, I more vividly recall the place or subject due to my increased skills in photography. I think this is not understood by those people who insist on what they call “natural” photos, i.e., those that are not processed in any special way. A friend of mine insists that HDR looks fakey, whereas I see them as a more honest rendition of the memory.

    Wonderful textures and colors Trey!

    Love your description of the picture. It does look very lonely. The color is magnificent. Where is the ghost:-)
    Anyway, another great picture, thanks for sharing!!!!

    I have a bit of an arts background and I have struggled with hdr as well. I tend agree with you and less with your friend. HDR does create a sense of place in the human mind better for those that see beyond the form, function, and detail of a place and more into its soul. On a technical level hdr can be overdone. Its similar to the images 5 years ago when digital photogaphers were using too much of their “new” tools — saturation and USM were over done. Now you do not see as much of that anymore. HDR is getting better from the masses as well.

    …thanks to fine examples such as this and the willingness for people like Trey to post tutorials for us.

    Trey, thank you!

    It appears to be redesigned.

    Trey! I’ve been visiting here often for the past couple months and just wanted to say your work is awesome and inspirational! Thank you for sharing 🙂

  • I can feel the loneliness even tho I’m sitting in school computer lab with so many people around me!!! Well done 🙂

  • Not to stress a point too much, but this picture has little connection with the Bhagavad Gita or Hinduism. This is a picture of Humayun’s tomb, if I’m not mistaken. Humayun was a Mughal king who followed the Islamic faith. It’s a minor detail, but the picture is very good.

  • Amazing photograph Trey. Love the description as well.

  • Thank you very much everyone — good comments on HDR… and always happy to see new people posting! The water is warm! 🙂 Good to see you Jen.

    And yes Kourosh, I feel the loneliness too…

  • I never seen anything like that. Amazing design and colors.
