Default My First tries with the macro filter!

I have recently received my macro filters. A Hama +1, +2 & +4

I haven't gotten around to using it well but here's some first attempts so they are unsorted and pretty much random. Please view

Interesting! The shot of the shoe shows good detail. Do you find it hard to focus?

I really like the shoe, and the second fly is well done although a bit creepy!

good pictures hassan, would have been even better if you had changed the angle for the second pic of the fly, to maybe incorporate some detail of the wing too. nice eye close ups though, well done

Surprisingly no, actually. I am still trying to understand the subject distance-focal length-vignetting relation but at a decent distance, the camera focuses well enough if I set it on Macro focus

Nice collection. Macro takes some time to figure out the best angles and such, but you have a good start here. And those are great shoe laces.

All very nice. But I agree with BackyardPermaculture, the fly picture bugs me...;^)
