Simply beautiful pictures, Saly- I really love these! Your use of depth-of-field is great here.

Thank you Zos and Wes! I find that when using the LC55, if I position the camera about 18 inches away and zoom in, it creates a very effective DOF/Bokeh. If I need to, I go into A mode and open up the aperture as much I can. I'm typically in P mode, though.

When I last used my close up lens with the converter, I didn't realize there was a converter on/off setting to use for when you have other lnses attached. I just found that out last night while reading the manual. No I must go try again. Do you know what that setting actually does?

Zos, all it does is zoom in to get you past the extension tube to avoid the vignetting. That's all. You don't need to change the setting at all, just make sure you zoom past the tube yourself. That setting also disables your flash, which is annoying.

Somebody pointed this out to me recently, so I stopped using the setting myself....

saly, can't you adjust the aperture in P mode? On the fz40 you press the shutter half way, then release. Camera displays its chosen aperture/shutter combination and then you move the thumbwheel to change it. I believe the fz35 has a similar feature.

BTW, these macros are great!

Backyard, yes I think you are right, but I haven't tried it. I'll try it when I get my camera back from my son in a week....can't wait, I'm having photo withdrawals...
