Thanks for the compliments - I have great fun with these kinds of pictures, and will take them whenever I get the chance. Since it's pretty low humidity most of the time where I live, and it doesn't rain in California all that much, I don't get many chances.

The extra mp of the K20 definitely comes in handy, and I really like the way the pictures handle cropping so well. But as was pointed out in another thread, the K20 is a evolutionary improvement over the previous Pentax cameras, and the other ones can take really good pictures, too. So much of a picture depends on the photographer and post processing, not just the equipment. Out of curiosity, how many would have been able to tell which of these were taken by which camera? Equipment helps, but it is simply a tool to express oneself.

I'll start another thread with the next topic I covered Saturday.

Harriet, this is a magnificent series.

nr3 and the web are my favorites, but any other shot on it's own would been a keeper in my book.

Got to place photographing grass with dew on my to do list.

Wonderful series of drops images! Amazing work you have done here.. The light is so great and you have got a variety of angles, making a lot of detail.. My absolute fave is an image with drops in spiderweb.. it's really fabulous.. well done!

Very cool, Harriet.

I have the worst time trying to handhold the Viv. You did very well. I take it the flash helps.

They're all inspiring Harriet, something that would be easy to try out here ... we get lots of rain. Hope I don't cause a drought with that statement. :lol: ... Jack

Dennis,
IMO ... Macro + Flash go hand in hand, focus trap can be very rewarding when used with the first two. ... Jack

wow!!
very nice..
once you start using flash for macros it's hard to go back. the time duration of the the flash's Ev makes 1/180sec meaningless.

Hi Harriet,

Great stuff! The way the drops act as tiny lenses focusing the background is magical.
