When The Angels Dance by kkart When The Angels Dance by kkart
When I was a kid I used to think that when there were sun rays in the clouds and the sky, that those were Angels looking down from heaven.

I would like to think that is still true.

ps--remind me not submit things when I am barely awake, wow edited the description, title, for typos, like 6 times now lol

Would it be possible to get permission to use this photo for the background of a manipulation? It's absolutely gorgeous. The image would be used for a character profile on an RPG and I would be more than happy to give you credit for the background.

holy mother of christ! your an alpha user too! good to hear that (or read)... are you using a 35mm prime?

really what lens are you using? i am disparate to improve my shots. currently i am using an a33 (i know it's not a dslr, its a slt) and i am hoping to capture some to those clouds you got here. please help... TT__TT :please:

Indeed I am, I have shot Minolta since the late 80s so I am not switching. I don't any Sony lenses, all mine are pretty much vintage Minolta, exception being 2 Tamron lenses and a Sigma. This was shot using my Minolta 18-200mm
roommyt Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2012  Student Photographer
thank you very much mr. kkart for sharing some insight about your gear... i also love the feed backs that people are telling me that a 100mm macro minolta lens is a must have... it takes sharp images they say... i think that minolta lenses are really wonderful and built to last... that is why i am hoping to buy that 400mm F/4.5 apo... i just hope i can find one that is under my budget. T_T
kkart Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2012  Professional Photographer
Minolta lenses are great, no questions asked however I would be very cautious about going super telephoto (400-600mm primes) which are Minolta lenses. There are no parts for these lenses and if it breaks you are essentially SOL. Your $ would be wiser spent on a Sony 70-400G
roommyt Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2012  Student Photographer
so as what i have heard... i am also fixing my eyes on the 70-400mm but i have heard that sony has a 300mm g lens too... i am considering to buy the 300mm but i don't think i can afford it. it's too much for my heart to take.
kkart Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012  Professional Photographer
ya you need longer than 300. If you seriously want focal length, go get a used Sigma 170-500. I used one this Fall and was over the moon with that lens and will be buying one. This was photographed using that lens [link]
roommyt Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012  Student Photographer
wow that was an amazing shot... is it light waight? but i think i can't carry a 500mm? i am only 5ft tall and not that good with carrying heavy things.

as what i have heard 500mm are monsters... i do want to have a 500mm but i have doubts if i carry it around.
kkart Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012  Professional Photographer
It's light, not anything like a 500 f/4. No issues hand holding it at all. Not very large

i only got a 18-55mm, 50mm, and a 75-300mm lenses... i want to volunteer at wwf as a photographer if they have vacancies around my area. i want to help preserve nature... i live in an highly industrialize of a coastal and mountain area... the hills and mountains that stood there for millions years has become plains... it's no longer there... the beaches and the place where mangroves use to thrive is gone too. and god know what had happen to the poor animals. i just want to help preserve what is left and may be just by showing those photographs might save us all.

I love the title. I also like the fact that this amazing view of the sky happened to be over a golden field. :clap:

"Let there be light!" :D
Wow. This reminds me of Thomas Kinkade stuff, although I don't know if he paints light coming through clouds but regardless, this is the kind of stuff I wish I could paint! Brilliant :)

I just want to bottle up all the shades of blue in the sky and keep them just to look at them all the time. And I applaud your light and value balance. :]

I be hanging in there I guess. Just staying bust. I am not around this place much myself either these days :P
MissKris11 Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2012  Student Photographer
It's hard to find the time anymore lol. I do miss seeing your photos though. Do you still frequent Google+? I thought that was going to be the big thing for photographers.
kkart Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2012  Professional Photographer
Yep, on there all the time and it is the big thing for photographers. Gigantic actually. From massive huge photo meetups to live on air hangouts on how to shoot something, no place else like it :)
