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.

Great reflections, beautifully enhanced by the ripples (clever trick?) and the light foliage in the corner. Nice!

RuneE said...

A really nice one - the spreading water gave it an extra dimension.

Pour moi cette photo est très réussie : je l'aime pour son équilibre, et sa géométrie. Mais aussi pour tout ce qu'elle évoque, avec une simple goutte d'eau ...

That is a great subject of reflection ; I love the way the drop disturb it... Nice catch indeed, thanks for the sharing !

The ripple is so finely captured here, Dimple. It becomes the focal point for the image and the beauty radiates from there. Good eye.

Almost looks like a bench underwater -- wouldn't that be fun to sit there in swim suit and enjoy the cool water on a hot day?

Serendipity said...

Beautiful. I like the movement in the water.

I love this shot. It's simple yet very effective. Nicely done!

I think the green thing in my picture has something to do with the UV filter on my lens. I like the UFO story better though. :)
