Both are very nice but I like #2 best. The colors are so vibrant.

The grass&spider photo is top class! Standalone, lady bird photowould have been a nice shot,but in comparison with the spider photo it certainly pales. Nice pics, Beth!

Great photos Beth, right up there with some others on the forum in macro shots. #2 is wall hanger.

I agree with the others as well!!! luv the colour contrast in #2. I still have problems focusing with the Raynox and need more practice. I will have part of the photo clear but the rest will be blurry!!! What are the differences with the Nikon 5T and 6T?

Hi Annie...

For this spider I did not zoom all the way in. You will find that zooming out will give you better general focus but still be a good close-up shot. Zoom in only on things that require that either out of personal interest, composition, study of a detail or aspect, etc. and then you will find you have limited DOF (depth of field).

I don't yet know how to compare the Raynox with the Nikon 5/6T except I know there is no vignetting at the lowest zoom. To what extent diameter affects DOF, I don't know.

I hope this helps, I am still learning. )

Beth, lovely 2nd shot! Nice sharpness and details!

#1 shot could have been better focused on the eyes. Ladybirds are not easy to shoot, as we tend to focus on the shell than the eyes.

Beth, You did great on both shots! I think a little PP in PS would make #1 "pop" a little more! Jim
