After waiting very long for it, I finally got my A-Life macro CUL from Olympus, despite having to wage war on the postal service (It contained the entire kit, with the Diffuser. now I can finally toss my old one away).

Here are three shots that I tried out today. All shots are uncropped.

diffused flash + flashlight for sidelight

processed through ACR + PS for controlling exposure.

congratulations - welcome to the club!
#2 and #3 are awesome!
Your skills were visible before, from now on the equipment fits to this skill!

Thank you for the invite!

I grabbed something that'll make my macro's even more extreme today...but I'll keep it a secret until I've managed to make it work. :)

I have no secrets!
Just look at my new work - sorry olympus is not involved.;forum_id=23
waiting for your secret world! what´s next: growing up - upside down?

Reason it's being kept secret is because I'm not sure it'll work satisfactory atm :) But it does include something at 50mm stuck on the wrong way :)

this will work, look at my amber edition!
50mm: f/8, camera full zoom f/open.
good luck!

Well, went out now when the sun starts to really set and tried it out. I managed to catch this wasp while he was cleaning did he get angry with me afterwards (Yes, he tried to attack me).

It didn't become as sharp as I might've wanted to, but it's good for a first shot with 50mm reverse lens.

This is a good start, but I use this equipment at home.
In the field 7,7 diopt. is enough!
