The weather has been the last weeks just lousy, so to keep busy I started to experiment a bit with my tamron 18-200 + a raynox drc250 & dcr150.
The first shot is the tamron alone, the next shots are the tamron + the dcr250, dcr150 stacked.

The subject is a branch of witch-hazel i found on my way home.

I think i'm slowly getting there, any c&c is appreciated - Ronny

Good argument for these add-on lenses. I've never been much of a fan of them, but you keep posting pictures like this and I'll have to change my mind!

ron, i like all of them except the first. OOF or focused in the wrong place, cam movement. somethig is off.
what exactly is a drc250???
also if you kept the exif info included in the image it's a lot easier to C&C..

Thanks mtngal, I had them lying around, and didn't expect these results. I don't think I would have bought them if I had a dslr first. Would have gone for a good macro lens but now I'm rather pleased with them (again)
