Love Letter

Every single year that we've been together, Alan has written me a poem for Valentine's Day. He also spoils me rotten... but that's another story. These poems mean so much to me. I know he puts a lot of effort and love into each one. They always rhyme and they're always incredibly sweet. This year's offering was no different. This is absolutely my favorite and most cherished gift. I am so grateful for my husband and what he does for our family.

I'm working on filling the whole frame of the photo. I placed the letter on a desk and shone a lamp right on it. I like the shadows too. If my camera had manual settings, I would have played around more with the depth of field so that the edges were more blurry. CC

I think you did a great job with what you had! =) What a sweet Valentine's Day gift too!

That looks great! You did a really good job. I like the idea behind the composition, the actual composition and the exposure. Way to use interesing lighting!

What a sweet tradition!

My only CC is that I would like to see it in sepia... the ink looks blue which for some reason is distracting to me, but making it sepia would have kept the warm feel of the lamp light without the blue color.

I love the sweetness in this picture. I love "Love notes" and this picture speaks to me
