Default Some new macro's.

Shot with the Canon 10D, canon EF 35-105 lens with a Raynox DCR-250 macro lens connected. A pain to focus.







Greetings,
Frank

helloooo Mr. Doorhof, how are you these days!

I like your first shot - although it's a bit overexposed on the bees head and eyes. With your skills, this is easily corrected.
It's still my favorite of those three shots.

The second is not good (...to be honest. I know you can take it). Okay - it's close, but it's also uninteresting because it's blurry and there's no details. The bees head is hidden and one of the wings are all white/grey!

What I think is worth going for in such photos, is the hair on the bees head or body. If these gets sharp, it makes an impression of total sharpness and quality. Just watch the bees legs in the second shot - that's details and that's what we want to see. Maybe you agree on this ?

The first one is great Frank!

Frank on first blush the pictures look great with really vibrant colors.

But (as usual) your DOF must be off since parts of the flower/insect are sharp and others are blurred. Unfortunately while that is sometimes desireable, I think for these shots that is actually intefering a tad. The second is probably the best example where the head of the bee and the hair on the head are just this side of being too fuzzy.

Really nice macros, Frank!
The first one reminds me of a picture I've taken some days ago:

Frank, I really like the first shot the best although there is some nice detail showing in the second one (too bad about the one wing)
Of course, I love the yellow in all the shots. It's such a cheerful colour.

Kex,
Nice shot also.
