You know, I'm not so sure with the kit lens. It's hard since it doesn't have a depth of field scale. I know most of the newer Nikon lenses don't have a hard infinity focus stop, meaning if you turn too far to the right, it actually goes out of focus slightly as its just beyond the actual infinity setting. If thats true for the kit lens, you might actually be putting your shots out of focus.

The easiest way to overcome that is to focus on the stars or anything really far away, even the treeline in that picture would work...

Sorry about that. I think the dragonfly photo is great! Especially once you pulled the colors a bit it makes it pop! The field photo possibly try going vertically looking more towards the stars.

Like the little biotope. The bright, out of focus leaf, however is kinda distracting.





Can anyone tell what this is?

Aurora borealis. Wish there was a focus point, but I cant complain, its an awesome photo.



Found this flower above the treeline on a glacier last year. Wish I knew the species name, only about this big ---

It's actually the sunset reflecting on the surface of a pond.

CA is actually California. We don't get much aliens around these parts.

Well then. Now I am totally looking like an idiot, not northern lights, and apparently, there is a state abbreviated 'CA'. CA CA CA! Sounds like a bird.

I like the composition but for my eyes, the sun reflection and sunspots are a little distracting. I think that would be a great spot to get a well lit landscape shot though.

Here's a flower shot from today. I love this time of year, I love to take flower macros, probably one of my favorite subjects...
