Nice, could use a bit more DOF in a couple though.

Very Nice. Great bokeh in the first picture. There is really no reason for someone looking for a nice macro to not consider the Tamron.

Actually, I prefer the unique character of the images with the DoF as shot. Really focuses attention on the opening of the buds. The yellow bud against the white background is a bit too washed out for my liking; however, the red buds are all very nicely done!

I really like the yellow rose with the delicate curving leaf, very picture worthy. I think Tom is right,though,a little more dof would be good.

Thank you everyone for your comments.
The yellow rose was a challenge as it's background is a bright cream fence only inches away. How would I make this better and how do you suggest I increase the DOF ?
