[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
in greek mythology, it is referred to both the underworld, the afterlife, and the god of the dead.

the deceased entered the underworld by crossing the river acheron, also called the styx, ferried across by charon, who charged an obolus, a small coin for passage, placed under the tongue of the deceased by pious relatives. paupers and the friendless gathered forever on the near shore. the far side of the river was guarded by cerberus, the three-headed dog defeated by heracles (roman hercules). beyond cerberus, the shades of the departed entered the land of the dead to be judged.

this abandoned pier was taken during my stay in kish island, iran while strolling near the beach. the sun was streaking too much light that i had to underexpose the clouds and later on post-processed it thru photoshop. i added the blue hue for a dark and sad mood.

Great mood !!

galeng nito. pro work na talaga.

I think I'll just say this:


I like this!

oooh I like this bro! Very atmospheric and forbidding. The aperture/exposure and post processing work well but my favourite bit is the point-of-view, looking down the skeletal throat of that ruined pier. Nice!!
Congrats ... keep up the eerie work.

wow, thi is really impressive, Jeff !
Congratulations, my friend !!!

thansk and stay well,

Hi Jeff,
Your representation of hell is very convincing, gloomy and frozen.
Very well done.

Excellent PP work tokayo, cheers.


Very moody, Jeff. Good work on it.
I will show some 'Iran shots' (taken in end 1978) after, as well.

Hohoo! another job well done, Jeff. This place looks amazingly creepy. I don't know where you found it, But I'm glad you did.

Good job on the PP, you made it look just like it's a scene from a movie on mythology.

hi Jeff! ganda ng effect! nice PP work! cheers! jing

Hi Jeff
Intresting shot.

Excellent shot. I see the boaters about to pass by ahehe. Mabuhay ka dre. Malufet ka talaga. I like the light's reflection in the water. Overwall eerie effect. Excellent!

Pang desktop. ;)


Weird and morbid. I like it!

Nice atmosperic shot. good title, excellent composition and an interesting PP treatment

Excellent moody shot with a well chosen title. Composition is very good and colouring works well. Put a large film title across this and it could be a backdrop for a cinama poster.
Thanks for sharing

beautiful POV, it like i'm expecting somthing to come out of of the water though those poles :)

love the tones and color choice

I have to agree with all other visitors here :) well done.

Hi Jeff

Wow... a magnificent dramatic shot. Excellent note to go with it. Congrats! Into my favourites it goes. :-)

Hi Jeff, A very forbidding looking place. You have captured the mood of this structure well with colours appropriate. Excellent creativity shows through. Murray.

Colors, pov and sharpness are just prefect. Really impressive work.Your note is exellent too,I've seen yesterday "Clash of the Titans" a movie from 1981 (I think) where the sceen you discribe iwth Charon passing the river Styx.
Once again superb work.

Fantastic shot. I saw this on the TL front page and my mouse gravitated to the thumbnail because I _had_ to see the full version.

Your PP has added exactly the mood that your notes describe.

It seems like Poseidon´s temple was raising to the sky.
I see it in this way. "the lost temple".
Great shot and spectacular!
Take care,
