Default Worth it?

Should I try this, or save it for Flickr?

TIA

It might have a chance, but it has way to much sky right now which I would crop out before even trying it.

Agreed. Way too much sky, and also not enough contrast with the glint. As it is now, it won't get on.

Sun looks to high up to me to get a good glint shot, To high wash's out the colors.

I agree with that. It was too early for a glint shot. The colors have come out way bright and washed out. It would have been better maybe an hour or two later when the light has turned orangish/red. That is the only appealing way to shoot a glint shot.

Here is a good example of a glint shot. And no I'm not trying to suck up to the screeners.

That is a really well exposed shot. Its hard to get something like that so good in those conditions.

How is any harder than any other condition? You just pick something to meter off of, adjust the settings and click.

Shooting into the sun always gives me issues anyway. Even when the meeter looks right my shots always seem to end up over/under exposed or highlights are blown out or too dark. Maybe its just me.

You need to get better at chimping.
