    I just took my first Macro shots yesterday. Please Critique me, I'm new at this. I feel that my DOF should be better.. It was set to F/11

    Hmm.. Looks to me like they are all out of focus. Seems that your to close for your lens to be able to focus.

    These are a good start. What are you using for lighting?

    The last 7 don't show up for me just now, and the first couple show traces of camera shake here and there ... what kind of lens do you use for your macro photography? Is it a tele-zoom with a macro function at the end? Then you need oodles of light when you stop down to f11, I fear, and with the lens being so long when in macro, you are in even greater danger to get shake.

    But I think you did well all in all (from what little I am getting to see just now), but the line of the focus is pretty slim even at f11, isn't it? Makes focusing not quite so easy, hm?
