Default art photos- playing with my new bellows!

so i finally got my bayonet to screw mount converter in the mail yesterday (yay!) and so spent the day indoors playing with the bellows that mole had given me a while ago. these are very close detail photos of my paintings, so if you don't like abstract photos, you might not like these. anyway....
i love to use bright colors in what i do:

Well, I can see you are going to be another Macromaniac!
You'll have a ton of fun with those bellows, Vole.

You are having too much fun with those bellows - you'll be able to get REAL close to everything. Looking forward to more, these are very nice. The big problem I've found when you get so close, is that the dof is so tiny and there's no margin of error for focus.

Manual focus, super macro and long bellows are tough to work with - but you seem to be mastering them already. These are fascinating photos - some very surprising details!

gw: yes, i have always loved macro, and am way excited about being able to be even more macro (grammatically, i think i just confused myself in that sentence...)
mtngal: thanks! i think that the tiny dof will work well with what i tend to want to do with macro, but thanks for the warning!
mole: thanks! i am having alot of fun with them!

Vole, you'll be sneaking up on everything now that you have the bellows! Enjoy using it.
