The one above the last one need a bit of retouching, but they all look great! Was it the FZ35 without any add-ons? no macro lens thing or filters right?

Thanks Jim for your compliments. That's interesting because I think the Raynox and the LC55 cost about the same here.....Anyway, you don't have a long way to go! I've only had my LC55 for 6 weeks. Once you learn the tricks, it's easy. Just a few things to remember 1) good lighting, 2) good background, 3) hold the camera steady (I never use a tri or mono pod). And, there are certain colored objects I avoid because for some reason I can't get them to come out right - deep pink is one of them.

you can find the Raynox 150 10$ cheaper than the LC-55 if you shop

As for retouching, I use GIMP + G'MIC and Photoshop CS5, but I'm sure the software included with your camera has retouching programs too!

yes..photofun HD 4.00 edition came with the camera but Win 7 doesnt support the software so it hangs..!
Raynox 150 is around Rs.1300-1400 cheaper then LC55..thats why i chose it..

Jim, these are beautiful. Are these taken outdoors? The exposure is wonderful.
