Hi Penolta - One thing I have been playing with this Spring is using a diffuser in bright sunlight. This helps me prevent the blowouts I was getting. You are right yellow and white are bad for that, especially when you contrast them with darker colors. I used a diffuser on the buttercup I submitted in this forum. Those things tend to blow out bad in bright sunlight.

Here is a link to an article I found interesting on the subjectthat may be helpful. I carry mine in the pouch shownon my belt ready to grap it quick if needed. It pops open and folds back easily. Nice pictures I might add - Bruce

Yes I would say that Hay Fever season, I mean Spring has made it to your area for sure. Good shots, all of them.
