          • This one, I call "The Warrior". As in Prayer Warrior. Someone who is diligent about talking to God as an intercessor - a go-between for those who are in need. From pain. From worry. From....anything. I have been doing a lot of low-key work, lately, Mostly trying to mimic others, practicing on getting the right settings, but decided to go out on my own. Here, I placed my mom's old worn Bible on the couch, set my camera to black & white, 1/400 sec. f/2.4 iso800 and 10 sec delay. I positioned a small led light that is used to light glass displays, trying different distances and angles. Then I turned out the lights and sat on the floor and folded my hands in front of the lens at varying places until, on the very last shot, I got it just right. I use a Sony rx10iii. I live in west central Indiana Thank you for the votes.

          • My favorite color is orange. That's why I love sunsets. I can't see them very well from my house due to the trees, so I have to go look for them, if I see it will be an exceptional one, I hop in my car and drive until I see a good open space. This particular one was at the east end of the cemetery about three miles from my house. I took several shots and was leaving, but kept looking back thru the trees for a different view. It's best, sometimes to have something in the viewfinder besides the sun, just to show size or dimensions. I saw this overhanging branch and stopped just l long enough to compose the shot. I didn't do much in the way of post-processing. This was pretty much the way it presented itself.
