Lynn Haack 9/29/2007 10:00:02 AM

I have "always" admired this photo. I was surprised to see that I did'nt comment yet! Beautiful and sentimental image. One sure sign of a truly magnificent photo is if it lingers in our thoughts and can be easily visualized without actually seeing the photograph. This is one of those photos! Congrats! Lynn #4861030

Steven W. Lepak 11/2/2007 5:29:04 PM

Description

Re-post (for the monthly theme) of an image I originally posted in October.
This image was a gift to my wife on the occasion of our 22nd anniversary and features my wedding ring.
This time I desaturated all but the ring - much better I think.
F/20, 1/15s, ISO-200, Canon EF-S 18-55mm lens.
