Terribly overexposed, I know, but it has assets, I believe, thus my reason of posting. I applied the Orton Technique to the photo. All constructive critiques would be appreciated.

In the great house there are vessels,
Some of wood and some of clay,
There are great ones and small ones;
You can choose the one to take.
Some poor service, some poor beauty,
Others bear refreshing wine.
Lord, I care not how You use me,
Please, just hear this prayer of mine.

Make me a vessel unto honor;
The fame of this world I refuse.
Sanctify me, cleanse me, and fill me,
Meet for the Master’s own use.

Lord, my vessel is empty,
It is purged from dross and sin,
By Your precious Blood on Calvary;
It has cleaned me now within.
‘Though unworthy for your service,
Yet Your grace is mine today,
And so I offer You my vessel
For Your use, and this I pray.

Make me a vessel unto honor;
The fame of this world I refuse.
Sanctify me, cleanse me, and fill me,
Meet for the Master’s own use.

“But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.” II Timothy 2: 20-21

I agree with metpin777--this came out exactly right. A serene and contemplative study.

I really like the gauzy veiled look, softly serene.
