Lord Give Me Strength
Finalist-April 2009


This was an experiment with added light and a very cooperative Tree Frog. The captured expression looks as if this little guy is praying to GOD that I will hurry up and end his very first photo shoot...LOL.

I actually did not really do anything fancy in terms of photo editing other than the usual.

Well done, Tammy! Actually...this would make a fabulous spiritual card, especially with that title. I've seen ones like this in Bible stores. You might give it a try!

Leslie, Lisa and Dawn S.

Thank you so much for your support and kind comments. As you all know, I appreciate the time you took to look and make your comments.

As for seeing this again, well, it would be nice but I have learned not to get my hopes up. I still stick by what I have said all along; I get just as much enjoyment out of the comments from the BP members. You all are the true judges.

Magnificent lighting and vivid colors, wonderful detail and image composition, Tammy! (by any chance, do you know what the pixel dimensions are of the photo you uploaded? this is one of the biggest "displayed" images I've seen on the site)

Carry: You have raised an interesting question and you are right it is the largest I've seen too. Okay, give me some time and I will go back through the steps of what I did to get this size and also get the pixel information. I do know that I enlarged the photo, then I croped the photo how I wanted it to look then I set the width at 800 or 833 pixels per a post I read on one of the BP threads. I also learned that uploading as a Tiff is better. I know if you upload as the orginal size BP automatically resizes the photo. A person who is excellent on this subject is Ken Smith.

Tammy, congratulations on your wonderful & well deserved EFPs this month... it was a tough one. :) I read on the EFP thread that this little guy is missing so I will be praying that he will be found quickly and in good health. I'm sure he has become a much loved member of your family and a fun subject to photograph. Have a great weekend!!!!
