Respectfully Silent

  Respectfully Silent
Respectfully Silent

Life Is About Moments.
THIS IS ONE OF THEM.

That Moment of Being Respectfully Silent For
Another Player As They Focus On Making Their Move And Doing It.

As We Stay Quiet,
We Look At Their Eyes, Their Expression. Their Form,
We Consider Their Plan
And Allow Them To Execute It In Peace.

Those are the unwritten rules of the game.
No Matter The Game You Are Playing.
Golf, Cards, Shooting Pool and Even Snapping Camera's While Together.

It Is In These Moments We Take In The Experience.

Too awesome and I need to be quiet in posting my comment so as not to disturb the concentration of the player. Great lighting and I'm so impressed with colorful flares. I better put my phone on silent mode Ha Ha! Well done Laura.

I've enjoyed your comments so much here. The judges didn't seem to like it. :( Not even an EFP? :( Oh well. I am thrilled that you liked it. :) That means a lot to me. I worked on this one for a good while. It used to be a semi-bright image with other people standing there as well.

In real life we were all being very quiet for her. :D I'm glad for that.

Hand held? No flash? You never cease to amaze the rest of us, Pom!
Your digital work is - dare I say it? - awesome, and the pov is perfect. YOU know it deserves recognition, so someone was asleep at the switch when this went by...
Luckily, there's always re-submitting, so that the judges can atone for their mistake!
