    hey thanks man! had to get real close too for them demsel/dragonflies, like lens was cm's away lol with the waves, long exposure on a tripod, for something like that couple seconds shutter speed is generally enough, took that same shot over and over many times tho to get the timing right/kind of wave i wanted but yea that shot pretty much came out of camera like that, i just do minor raw editing/touchups after that

    happy new year everyone! mother nature was kind to me, stopped the thunderstorm and gave me this sunrise this morning (though would've been pretty cool to capture the crazy lightning that was going off as well lol) First Sunrise of 2015 by basketballfreak6, on Flickr

    thanks man! yea i think it's due to the composition itself, if you look carefully enough you can probably tell the "line" in which the flowers were planted, i tried to hide it as much as i can with composition but there was only so much i could do, if only i could move the sky lol...

    first time out at this location after reading about the sunflower plantation, absolutely beautiful place in the country side struggled quite a bit trying to get decent composition due to the way the flowers were planted vs where the nicest part of sky/sun is setting today, and that the flowers were tall, like almost my height haha, winds + slow shutter didn't make it any easier, the 300km return drive was worth it though, beautiful place on this beautiful summer afternoon... by basketballfreak6, on Flickr

    lol you ass you know what really sucks, first time i went up i brought my heavy ass 70-200 with me hoping to get some birds, i hear them alright but they were so far up i couldn't even see them, but saw butterflies and these horseflies i want to shoot but didn't have my macro gear, so this time i bring my macro gear (flash and all) and not my 70-200 and i see a couple birds that i've never seen before and ones i suspect don't let you get close fly close enough to me where if i had my 70-200 i would've gotten decent shot of them, but didn't see any of the bugs i saw last time i was at the summit, fml
