  1. I've been having a lot of issues with flares and ghosting and am wondering how to fix the problem. I am currently using a UV filter and don't have a hood yet. Should I be using a polarized filter or should I simply buy a hood? Is it the filter or the hood that really makes the difference? Or is it a combination of both? It could simply be the angle I'm shooting as well though, I am a noob to DSLR's. I'm also looking for a new/better lens for my D3100 and would like any opinions. I'm strongly looking at the 55-300 AF VR but also considering the 70-300 AF VR lens. I just can't see why there is so much of a price difference between them which is why I'm favoring the 55-300. Thanks in advance for any and all input.
  2. Lake One Chain and the Pagami Fire

    Love the third image.
  3. High Flyer

    I'm the Iron Maiden fan personally. Bud not so much, but that is a fantastic shot.
  4. The Bug Thread

    @ LeeKen and Finbay - Just curious of what kind of lens you are using. I just bought my first DSLR and am looking to upgrade my lenses. I Have a Nikon D3100 and really like macro and landscape photography and I'm wondering what lensesyou use and/or recommend.
  5. The Bug Thread

    I just bought my camera so I only have a couple of bugs so far. Personally I think they are my favorite thing to take pics of. Both were slightly out of focus, like I said it is a new camera.
  6. Cool Cats?

    Thanks Borch. Guess it never dawned on me to check the St. Cloud forum for a thread. Now I just have to decide if I'll go to Bockfest or go fishing. Honestly fishing sounds better. No hangover involved with that and after attending the last 2yrs I would hate to miss it. I'll see ya on the ice.
  7. Is there a date set for the Cool Cats get-together yet? Please tell me it isn't the 5th of March.
  8. From Vexliar to Marcum

    I went from an FL-18 to the LX5 and honestly couldn't believe the difference in target separation. It truly is like night and day and I know you won't regret making the switch, I sure don't. <-- Notice the profile pic.
  9. I just picked up a pair of the Vexilar Cold-Snap bibs that were on sale at FF and was wondering what someone who owns a pair think of them. Warmth, durability and how waterproof they are mainly. Thanks in advance.
  10. Last year I was there but for a short time because of the person with me so I am going solo this time so there will be no complaining of any kind. I really want to catch one of these cats so I will be there for sure. Guess the count is 26. nytelyter - I am also planning on being there really early. Shoot me an email if you want to meet up at bruhjellt @ yahoo dot com
  11. New Vexilars for next season?

    LMAO. Now that's funny right there. They should put a computer fan on it as well to keep your hole from freezing.
  12. Ice, Ice Baby!

    The outtakes were great. So funny I had to watch all your videos. Top water ice trolling was really good. Welcome to the site.
  13. Hyundai says I need a new Tranny put in that will cost me around $2100.00 bucks. So tonight I think I'll have about 21 beers and figure out where to get that money from. I really question why Aamco the Tranny Experts (or so they claim) couldn't tell me that.
  14. Mine is a 2003 Hyundai Tiburon GT V6 2.7L with Anti Lock Brakes.
