    This little series was taken over a month ago, but I can never make up my mind whether to post my pics at all...

    But I'll take the plunge and first of all want to ask you if photographing into the sun, getting lens flare, works here? And which of the two apertures I went for do you like better. Larger or smaller? (Data in the frame)

    As to bright spots in the woods I fought and fought with the concept, never getting it right. My bright spot always and invariably got overexposed.
    I think I am getting there, though, now that I know how to use my camera in full manual mode at long, long last ;)

    Are they any good?

    Great light! I think the flare doesn't detract at all in these!

    Really nice photos, the flare doesn't really present much of a problem!

    So you all think the f20-pic is better than the f14 one?
    I think I do, too.
    Only am I surprised to find out that I had to (or thought I'd have to) take the larger aperture pic at 1/20 sec while I could take the smaller aperture one at 1/30 sec. But I also changed the focal length just a tiny bit... :scratch:
