Snafoo, the sunflower field shot is beautiful. I like sunflowers. The small sunflower field at a local nursery was just not as grand as yours and many flowers had withered when I discovered that place. Probably will have to wait until next year.

I think this thread has gone nuts
A tripod is something you buy for a lifetime, so buy a good one!This was exactly the same advice I was given when I was looking for my first tripod system. I wish I had thought differently. The Arca-Swiss B1 I have weights about 1.5 lbs itself and is rated for 90lbs. I thought this would last forever even with a heavy telephoto lens. 12 years past, I never purchased a big white and probably will not in the next 5 years. One big mistake I have made was thinking too far out in the future.
My workflow: Adjust all the images in LR5, merge to HDR pro in CS6, 32 bit mode, set white as appropriate, render that, close it (yes to saving), mess with resultant file as it appears back in LR. One is attached.
Now it is the 300F2.8. I use the longer glass - this is for my wife to use if she wants a mini-great white
