Default Intro and Macro

Hello everyone. I'm new to the board and thought I would pop in and introduce myself and post a photo. I'm from Tulsa, Ok and have been enjoying photography for about 22 years. Got my first SLR when I was 15 (XG-1) and have been playing with digitals for about 4 or 5 years now. I'm currently using a Nikon 950 and a Nikon 2100. Macro is my favorite type of photography closely followed by astrophotography. This is a photo I took over the weekend of the 4th with my 2100.

A better depth of field would turn this good shot into a really great one.

The color really jumps out at you.

I agree. I was disappointed in the depth of field on this shot. In hind sight, I wish I had taken the photo with the 950 as to have better control over the aperture. Unfortunately, I didn't have the 950 with me on this trip. The one thing I'm learning about the 2100 is that you need strong lighting to achieve any depth with the 2100. Thanks for the input !
