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 use Picasa too:). Have a nice weekend!
Beautiful flower! I love all the photo effects!
I have some very boring (by comparison to yours) white and pink ones in my garden!
Nuts in May
What a gorgeous array of takes you've given us on this beautiful bloom!
love the bee
The colours in the first photo are stunning! Love how each edit creates such a different atmosphere, different kinds of romance. Love the mystery of the inverted colours!
The flower looks wonderful in these renditions, the B&W the beauty of shape, in colors the columbine in all its glory. Nice pics and editing!
There's lots you can do to your photo with Picasa. Sadly they're program doesn't support using the iPad yet so I haven't been able to edit my photos through picasa. Nice editing!
What a beautiful picture you have posted here, so glad there's a new one to feast my eyes on.
And,yes, isn't it amazing what Picasa cn do?
Blessings on your Father's Day Sunday!
You have done some fabulous things with the lovely columbine!
Picasa can almost make the user think that she or he is a Picasso!
I never knew what columbine looked like..now I know! Sometimes I do that too...take one picture and edit it several different ways. Fun!
Nice work getting this photo processed and made beautiful in so many ways. I really enjoyed your "giving credit where it's do" paragraph at the top of your blog. Very humble and thought provoking.
I have never tried using the picasa features. I might check on that. Those are lovely. Thanks for your beautiful contribution to Shadow Shot Sunday!
Shadows in my Kitchen, please come and see.
I like the HDR one. I'd hang that on my wall. :)
I like turning photos into the negative process. To me the colors are always so dream like.
Looks like you had a lot of fun post-processing your image. Nice results!
These are fun! I've mostly used Picasa to make collages.
soooo beautiful! love it :)
What a lovely flower. It's fun to play around with editing options.
I love the colors of the columbine. Fun edits.
Love Columbine it's shape and color. ^_^
Oh, it's nice to see all of the different processes!
Yep playing around with various photoediting programs is interesting and fun. Wish I had more time.
I did save an out-of focus outdoor shot which was taken on a cloudy day by making it look like it was raining.
Good jub! Thanks for sharing your blues.
Happy Blue Monday, Dimple.

My Yellow, have a lovely evening!
Happy Blue Monday! Love your photos. I am technically clueless so I am not sure how to do anything with my photos!
The flower photo in different colors and design is gorgeous!
Have a happy week!
Coming back for MYM.
Golden Memories from Korea, hope you'd come and see my MYM!
It's so pretty.
I love Colombine flowers for their many colors and attractive foliage.
Your Picasa editing of the flower enhances its beauty with unique effects.
Picasa is so fun! I like the HDR edit!!
