No post processing, just a quick out and shoot. Aperture set to 22 (there is no A setting for this lens). ISO set for up to 3200. Forgive me here, I'm very new to all this and I just got my *ist DL yesterday along with the macro lens. This is my first real foray into SLR shooting. My P&S is a Nikon Coolpix 2100. A big step up for me. But I think the picture turned out well considering. I spent $70 on ebay for this lens.

Thanks. I always liked these flowers in the backyard, they grow around the telephone pole that's in the corner of the yard. They seem to be getting less and less every year so I'm glad I captured one before they are all gone. I'm actually surprised by the picture myself, but very happy with it. Thanks for the input.

I am quite pleased with the lens so far. I was about 2-3 ft from that flower for that picture. Only problem tho is that I need lens caps for it. I see a lot of them on ebay so I might have to buy some. I'm being extra careful with the lens though in the meantime.

Thanks for the site. I certainly dont' need bunches of 5 or 10 lens caps. Filters will have to wait. Gearing up more for a decent zoom lens in preparation for next year's either US Grand Prix or the Canadian Grand Prix.
