I think these are some sort of magnolia. This is without the lense. Just cropping was done in pictures.

One more with the raynox! I was experimenting. I really like the detail (like in the one above!!!)

Nice. I just bought a Raynox HD6600PRO-55 WA lens for my Fz30 and Ive been having a blast with it. It's my first WA and I'm starting to wonder how I ever lived without it... My next purchase will probably be a Macro lens. Just curious, which model Raynox are you using in these shots?

RAYNOX DCR-150 is the one I got. It takes some getting used to, and it doesn't help when it is windy and everything is blowing around! Usually I'm holding the stem with one hand. I think my next purchase needs to be a tripod.

Bridget - Looks like you've got it downreal good. I like #3 (first with the raynox). Nice sharp detail in spite of the wind. IMO, a tripod just gets in the way. You need to have freedom of movement to get optimum focus, particularly outdoors. A tripod can be useful indoors where the distance to the subject (not to mention the subject itself) is fixed and the lighting not as bright as outdoors.

Adam - Agree on "wonder how I ever lived without it". The 6600 really brings adramatic perspective to wide angle shots. I useone alot withmy FZ5. How about posting some examples with the fz30?
