Default Macro mint

The Mint is in flower so I tried some raynox 250 on it, I am not overly happy with the results, in hindsight I should have bought the 150, any suggestions to improve my efforts appreciated.

Perhaps this is a better shot.

Now you learnt the difference. 250 is a difficult lens to work with. I think LC55 is much better, look at Saly's photos. However, you need not despair. By shifting the distance, you can overcome the problem, as you have done in #2. Once you get it well, you can always crop and resize. Forgot - and PP too!!

Dear Grounded remember also to use a tripod to avoid the effect of camera shake!!
