Did a pit stop while on my way up the Central Valley in California. For those that know the area, there really isn't much going on. While on our pit stop, I took the camera out for to shoot some wild flowers growing near the fence. The sun was high and bright!!! This is just one set of the pics I shot during my 20min shoot...

This is a Ladybug who seems to be enjoying the sun on a yellow wild flower... These are 3 different version of the same photo...

Ladybug | Wildflower

Here is where I decided to put a little extra to it

Add blurr & center focus on the ladybug...

This one I added Tiltshift to it...

I like the first shot, the second and third the colour looks a little dull. Although the composition the the flower on the right apeals to me more with the DOF of the second.
