This is just three of some pictures I took of water beads which formed on an umbrella. I'm not too happy with what I'm presenting to you. I've resized them (as I always do because I'm going to create an online gallery for myself and the width will be 520) and photobucket has a 250k file size limit. These could have been a lot bigger. Full size they're more impressive. The small size emphasizes the small DOF.

Thanks.
Nope, no reverse lens. That would require me taking a hammer to my camera. :lol:
It's a parasol and not an umbrella. I was standing on a pair of steps in light rain hand holding the camera. I would have taken a shot in macro and a shot in normal, but the tripod isn't that tall so it would be impossible to get two shots to match. :-)

I've not got any lenses to try it with. All of my dynax ones are automatic and the aperture is controlled camera side (no ring). I'd have to pull down the little lever which the camera operates on the lens but it's hard to get your finger on it and keep it there. I'm going to buy an old Minolta 101 or 101b from eBay which will probably come with a Rokkor prime lens. I've put a few bids in but some are going for more than I want to pay.

I've just thought whilst typing this. My dad has an old Nikon EM which has a 50mm lens. I'm might have to "borrow" it. :-)
