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.
A beautiful B&W, Dimple, but I'd love to have seen it in color.

A beautiful subtlety in this shot. I like it in colour too.
we have a similar ladies slipper that is native here in NH...also hard to find...Beautiful photo my friend!
Love the background...a fallen tree?
It produces a lovely contrast of textures
Nice tones and textures Dimple. I think the flower was upstaged by the neat background forms and textures.
The bark on that wood makes really attractive patterns - a great background. I went over to see the colour version, and WOW! What a beautiful flower!
I am drawn to the swirls in the background. I think it is a perfect complement to the orchid.
We are always searching for these type little orchids when we are out hiking. Sometimes we are lucky, but most of the time we miss them. This shot is great. It really shows the viewer what the bloom looks like. The macro really helped. Love it.
