Hope is the emotional state which promotes the belief in a positive outcome related to events and circumstances in one's life.


"Hope" is the thing with feathers
by Emily Dickinson

"Hope" is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all,

And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.

I've heard it in the chillest land,
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.


I love this poem and I'm thrilled my image did so well.

Thanks

Hope Emily Dickinson
I love the feather and composition and the combination of dark and light, detail and blur. I do see banding in the upper part of the background that keeps this from being top notch for me - excellent score though.

Simple, clean and quiet. That said, I crave something more. I am not sure exactly what that would be, but this image leaves me feeling a bit flat and wanting more
