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.
Hi Dimple. I prefer the first image though the second one is good too. The contrast makes the first more dramatic. It reminds me of what you can do with a red contrast filter and B&W film. The sky is nearly black yet the clouds retain their textures and tones. Nice work!
Both good, but I prefer the first. I really like contrast, and I love the clouds against the sky.
The second one...it's softer and has more detail in the poles.
They are both fine, but I prefer the second one.The lighter tone is what draws me to it. All photos with strong linear qualities like these are so appealing to me.
Such a nice capture. Genie
I prefer the first for the stronger contrast. But I love this picture! It makes me think of windmills, swirling the clouds.
Love this composition Dimple!
Well senn and captured. Version one for me, the contrasts adds life to the image.
Great composition! I do prefer the first image as it is more dramatic.
The spiral really draws your eye up, up and away
Version one is my favorite! I like the photo.
I like the softer second one. It's like it is reaching up to become one with the sky.
What an interesting exercise, Dimple, with both images preferred by your visitors. It's a superb find, and I join the contrast and drama people in choosing the first image.
Wonderful to look up from this angle. Think nr 2 is my favorite.
Happy Sunday to you!
Clever! I like the stronger contrast of the first one.
I like the extra contrast in #1 over #2, but I might prefer it toned down a little -- perhaps something between the two versions. Anyway, looking here and below, it's an interesting structure. Also, that's quite a dry environment in the above post but quite lovely in its own way.
Awesome! I like the top one best!
I like the first one most, I vote for you in the looking-up challenge
