Your prettiness is seeping through.

I've been shooting into the sun like crazy. Mostly because I can. I'm not sure why, but the results have been interesting.

 

This shot pulls me in, but I couldn't really say why. I think the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Certainly a leafier tree would have made for more interesting bokeh, but this one has something I really like.

 

Still trying to get the LB to do a real lens flare, even though I suspect it can't much. I've gotten some signs of flare, but nothing much. I'm very curious about the new optics, but I can't believe the fisheye really costs that much. I also want the step-up ring since I've got another lens with 52mm threads (and I think it would be interesting to pop an ND filter on top and start shooting some crazy beach shots), but again it seems overpriced. Especially when I've seen 37-52 step-up rings for like seven bucks online.

 

I think I'll cut myself off from trees soon. I hope. At least it's not my hangin' tree.

 

By the way, is anyone else playing around with the Lightroom 3 Beta? I'm having fun with the mild changes to the develop module - the new vignette controls are right up my alley. The noise stuff, not so much.

 

In Explore at #306. Thanks guys!
