    The glory of the sun is akin to the SON of God. Who says to us to be careful for nothing ! 🙂 And keep in touch with him via channel of prayer and supplication/s.

    Welcome to the forums, @b-kariappa! Perhaps your photo was a little too large for uploading? Per the Photo Critique Guidelines, photos need to be less than 8MB in size. Or perhaps the page was navigated away from before the photo finished uploading?

    Interestingly enough, I saw @b-kariappa’s photo before it disappeared. Not sure quite what’s going on with that.

    In any case, that’s a really cool photo, Blossom! Sunsets are pretty epic and are frequently used to represent God. Because of that, though, I think I’d like to steer away from the subject of sunsets for this Shoot to Serve assignment. I don’t know that sunsets communicate what I’m looking for.

    James,
    If we submit RAW files to Benjamin’s Dropbox link, will they be critiqued on the webinar?

    I thought these pumpkins went with Thanksgiving and fall.

    Those are some great shots of pumpkins! I really like the last two.

    I’d have to take a closer look, but they don’t seem to work really well as a phone wallpaper, which is what the VersePics are all about. It’s really difficult to find photos that look great in both 4:3 and 1:2, so don’t feel bad about that!

    Again, the photos themselves are awesome! Keep up the good work!

    Here is my submission. 😊
    When I think of mountains, I think of God’s might and power. That we don’t need to be anxious, but bring our request to Him. I am always awed by the majestic splendor of the mountains.

    Hey, here’s my try at this assignment.
    As @esther said,

    When I think of mountains, I think of God’s might and power.

    Same is true with me!
    It just feels so carefree when you’re up there on the mountain, above everything else, with the valley below. It just makes me want to give thanks to God, and “be careful for nothing, ” telling God what your request’s are, as Philippians 4:6 says!

    Here are some of our photos!
    We were not able to export our RAW files from Apple Photos as RAW files, but only as JPEG, PNG, or TIFF. For this reason we are submitting our JPEGs to the forum. I hope they work (we would be happy to share our RAW files if someone knows how to share them from the Apple Photos setup.

    Winter, spring, summer, and fall; God has promised that they will continue. God is in control, and He will provide for all our needs. He deserves all the thanks we can give Him!

    As for the foggy morning picture, it feels calm and serene. “When God is with us, why should we worry about anything?”

    Bread reminds me of Jesus, the Bread of Life, and how He taught us to ask for our daily bread.

    That did’t work quite right so I’ll try again and add a few more photos.

    These photos illustrate praying. We can ask for whatever we need from the creator and owner of everything through the avenue of prayer. Why should we be worried or “careful” for anything? Through reading the Bible and praying, we can grow in our relationship with God, and when we have that relationship with Him, it is possible to make our requests known with thanksgiving, no matter the circumstances.

    Yesterday the computer wasn’t working, so here is my last pictures now.
    The fall pictures I shot vertical and horizontal. Since the verse is about praying and bringing our request to God, I asked my little brother to illustrate it!
    BTW, he was amazing! 😄

    @elmullet, yes, I am most easily able to critique the photos that are submitted as JPG here on the forum; however, I usually reference their “original or RAW” counterparts submitted via the link in the details so I can better know how to critique the photo.
