Favorite Photo of the Week: Lake and a Sunset 2.11.12

An extremely busy and stressful week ends. It was a week filled with disappointments, but also with moments of blessings that filled me with hope. While I may not have captured those moments with my camera, I love that I am able to capture the same feelings in my photos. The two photos below do just that, the first seems like a physical manifestation of radiant hope and the second is just one of those blessed moments. 

Settings: ISO 200, 50mm, ss1/100, f/7.1 
(full manual, spot removal and a bit of a creative edit in Lightroom)
