    I thought the image below came out pretty well, but I'm not extremely experienced with macro photography, so I must have done something wrong. Let me know what you think.

    For reference, the largest of the berries is about the size of a small pea.

    Canon PowerShot Pro1, 1/20 s @ F2.8. Slight contrast increase done on computer.

    Thanks!

    What is it you think was done wrong with this macro photo, Skyscraper?

    DOF is all right.
    Light is all right.

    If I wanted to be nitpicky, I could say that I mind the bright part of sky in the background. But otherwise???

    Yeah, I agree. Crop out the bit of bright sky..it's distracting.

    Thanks everyone.

    I didn't really see anything in particular that I had done wrong, but l like I said, I'm not extremely experienced with macro and thought you might have suggestions. Little did I know they would be about composition!

    Anyway, I agree about the cropping. It actually helped to center the subject vertically as well.

    Looks better!

    Oddly enough, I prefer the original.
