For the ones who doesn't know, here in the picture we have corn reeds, and romanian people used them in the past to make roofs for their houses!

I like this macro shot!

Well, but you would have can make better on the technique photo, you have 1/10 second it is not enough is needed at least 1/30 to avoid the vague, you have a focal of 50mm; why not 1.4 or 1.8.
