Credit Where It Is Due

Credit Where It is Due

I like to make photographs, and I enjoy being praised for what I have done. But God teaches a different attitude, one of thankfulness and humility. He pointed that out to me recently. I DO NOT MAKE THESE PHOTOGRAPHS ALONE. I didn't create the light, or the technology which makes photography possible. I didn't buy my camera, it was a gift from my husband. I didn't give myself the ability to see through the camera in order to make an image which others find pleasing. It is right to use what I have been given to the best of my ability, but it is wrong to take credit for what I have not done. God made the light, the elements which are used to manufacture the camera, and the world from which these images come. He has given me gifts: people to teach me, eyes to see with, and a brain to process information. I am thankful for these gifts. He deserves all the praise, not I.

I see two skies here - upstairs and downstairs, too. The crystal clear Northwest water shines like a mirror, and wonderfully captures the heavens in a most excellent way. Lovely Idaho!

Good one dimple. Very pleasing composition and perfect reflection in the still water.

The clarity you have achieved here is astounding. The double effect, together with the colours of autumn are a knock-out combination.
