Sunflowers in July

Here are three images from Buttonwoods sunflower farm in Griswold, Conn....the first two images were taken with the Canon f2.8 100mm macro lens, on a tripod, of course!  The third image is a three image panorama using a pano rail and clamp from reallyright stuff...the sky was lacking that night but what choice do you have?  Shoot regardless, that's my motto...I am drawn to the less mature images of sunflowers for some reason; probably because everyone photographs the mature flowers...
the middle image is my favorite because of the movement created by the growing petals...

Project 365 day 355

This image of a brook near my house was taken with the Olympus M-1...I have found that these mirrorless cameras differ quite a bit from my slr...for one thing, F22 or F20 at low iso or 200iso are out of the question..otherwise the image takes minutes to process..F8 is the best option for landscape thus far; it is a challenge using this camera and figuring out what works best...
