Just got my D100 of ebay with the Tamron 24-135 lens. The perfect combination I was looking for. I was down in Washington DC taking pics when I noticed these flowers by one of the Smithonian museums. I am not really much of a macro shooter. I appreciate any suggestions on improvements. thanks

Hooba, I'm not partial to the first one - think its a combination of the lighting /shadow and the focus notbeing on the centre of the flower. The rose photos are spectacular though - particularly the first one. Excellent composition and exposure - Great job!

Thanks Suze. I agree with you too on the first flower. Feels a little flat to me. I am surprised about how well the roses turned out.

superb! Can you help me? Did you use a digital? What settings? Have you ever taken macros of anything with a reflective quality? I'm having headaches with this. :?
