Hi, I'm new to this forum and would like to share a few close-up shotsI took in my backyard while testing a couple of close-up adapters I found frommy film SLR days.

Wow Tullio! I love the colours and variety of your photos in this series of your backyard area.

Very nicely done. I particularly like the colour of the first and second photos. And the composition of the statue (boy pouring with the natural plants / flower there) is VERY interesting and intriguing!!

I have a feeling maybe a few of your shots would benefit from a slightly greater depth of field (higher f value) because some beautiful parts of the flowersstart to loose focus.

But still I am appreciative of your work (and your comments). I can learn from this series!

Paul

Thanks for your comments and kind words, Paul. You are right, some of the flower shots could indeed benefit from more DOF.I will try again but with the camera in Av mode instead. One of the problems in using macro and close-up adapters is that you really loose DOF. Yesterday I received my Sony VCL-M3358 close-up lens so I'll try that. I was alsovery pleased with the clarity and the amount of details I gotfrom the water fountain shots. That was done with a sigma achromatic macro lensbetween the camera and the DH1758 1.7x tele. No vignetting to my amazement!
