Jim-

#2 is clearly the best of the three photos. #1 shows some motion blur due to a shutter speed insufficient to stop the butterfly's wing action. I was facing the same problem when photographing wave action this morning.

Finally, #3, rose shot is clearly over exposed. When shooting in similar bright conditions, I automatically consider if Exposure Compensation is needed. In this rose shot Exposure Compensation was surely needed.

Jim

If u r capturing/using macro in day light then use ISO 80, it'll give u noise free image. Even u can use shutter speed 1/300, 1/400, 1/500 to get details of object in day light !!!

If u r using macro then use the largest aperture like 2.8. If u have used full 18X zoom (86 mm) then largest aperture will be convert into 4.4.

Therefore, Jim...

I would suggest that your very first step is to learn a whole lot more about Exposure Compensation, in view of the bright sun in India.

Take a look at my post called "Power!" Even though it was 0800 I still used exposure compensation due to the brightness of the photo scene and its high contrast.

thanks pinkesh for the suggestion..
Actually the butterfly was about 6-7 feet away and it was captured with fz35 + canon TL55 TC. while it was in flight..
nice suggestion for macro photos though, i will keep in mind ..thanks for the support..pl. continue to share the view and guide..
