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.

Love this moss. Because it gets hot, here, ours never last.

Nice contrast in textures and colors. We have so much moss it's ridiculous; still, I think it's pretty.

Beautiful Dimple! I like what you see too. Moss is so soft and perfect for miniature worlds.

I happen to see moss here and there but have never seen such a lovely thing as in this picture of yours , Dimple.

So very lovely with all the moss.

What bright fluffy moss, such a vibrant green too. You don't find that in Israel very often.

Hi Dimple... your visits to my blog are always a delight to my heart.

I enjoyed the lovely pictures you have posted here!

Mossy bricks look so lovely in pictures, but on stone walks, they can be really slippery!

Blessings on your day!

Now that's nice color Dimple.

Thanks for your comment on my tutorial. All editors will have USM sharpening. They don't use the same numbering method. PWP uses percentages for amount, Gimp (and Photoshop) use decimals instead. So my 10% would be 0.10 instead. The radius setting is the same but Gimp allows subpixel settings (below 1) and PWP doesn't.
