what cam are you using? Shots are awesome brother!
Thank you brother!

Canon EOS 750D and when needed a Canon Macro lens

The site has a restricted size for the picture quality so they all get downgraded. The originals look much better, especially the full tank shots which suffer the most. Because it’s big!
