Serenity Prayer

Congratulations to all my BP friends who are finalists this month, and good luck in the next round! To those of us that didn't make it this month, I dedicate this image to you - with the additional thought that there is always next month!

Sigma 50mm f2.8 EX DG lens; 1/100; ISO 320; f20; circular polarizing filter.

Thank you very much, Judy! It is one of my favorites as well, and the brown tilled soil served as the perfect backdrop for the prayer!

Great pano and thoughts, Ron! I think BP judges do need this prayer before they start and finish their commercial work!!
Ron, did you use any filters or filter effects?

Thank you very much Husain! I did use a circular polarizing filter on the lens for this image. No post processing work was done on the image. This is straight from the camera, other than a very slight bit of cropping!

A lovely photo, with a beautiful thought! Please remember that contests are just for fun, not anything to take to heart! Your work is fabulous, you do not need a judge to tell you so!

Thank you very much Candice and Terri! Candice, my message wasn't intended to be critical about the BP judges. Any photography contest is going to be subjective. My message was intended to convey what you said best, that the contest is for fun and not to get stressed about if none of your photographs are selected as finalists. I have always said that BP is an awesome site where photographers of all levels of talent can share their images and make friends around the world. That is worth far more than whether one is a finalist/winner in the contest.

Such a beautiful scene you've captured perfectly and one of my favorite quotes to go along with it.

Thank you Ron! It took me many years to appreciate the wisdom of that poem. Beautiful thoughts to go with this beautiful image.

This is a great photo Ronald, while I love the words, hope you resubmit it without the words as I believe it is a winner.
