    Well, I'm afraid you've still a little way to go. There are two critical (and difficult) aspects to macro photography. One is focus/DoF and the other is lighting. You're having issues with both. What I would suggest is get the focus weighed off first. Your stack of nickles is a good subject; take it outside on a bright day and experiment with focus. Don't forget you don't need to get right down on top of the subject just because you can; back up a little further and you'll gain DoF, then, crop!

    Do I recall from an earlier post that this filter doesn't fit your lens and you are hand-holding it?

    thanks, i have 2 close up filter for my 50mm, (+1, +2) then i was suppose to get the +3, but i saw this one it's +10 for 67mm.
    no, i don't hand-hold it, it fits on my wide lens, but when i use it, it starts to get a good focus starting on 35 onwards.
