    i feel no emotion when looking at the photos. maybe its just the composition or something, but they just dont do it for me.

    Just a note that I dont think this is considered macro photography...this is more closeup.

    Generally, you lack in composition...things are simply put in the center, you often cut off petals of some flowers. This may work sometimes, but that is because the photographer is doing it on purpose. The background for some of these is too busy and distracting

    Just because the lens is said to be a macro does not mean that it does true macro.
    A true macro will allow for a 1:1 image ratio on the sensor, which means the image is the same size as the subject being photographed
