    This are some pictures i took with my Sony cyber-shot. I just got a few weeks ago, so i'm playing around with. Looking at the different settings it has.
    please let me know if this are good close-ups i was using micro
    and has a 10x optical zoom. but the thing is when i put the camera close to the object it doesn't focus. so i have to back up abit so it can focus. does any have this camera so they can help me out?

    I don't have that camera or anything, but sometimes when I have my camera set to macro, it still doesn't focus very close up because my hands are too shaky or something. Could that be the problem?

    umm, ok... as per request

    1.) exceptionally blurry, hard for me to look at it for very long.

    2.) Much sharper, though it would be very helpful if the subject were more defined. What I mean by that is there are a lot of leaves in the background, etc. If you were to make it so I could only see one or two of the leaves with the droplets I think this would be much more successful.

    3.) This is quite hard on my eyes, seems over saturated, not all that sharp.

    As mentioned above the pictures are blurry and lack that sharpness that most macro photos need. That being said it could be something as simple as a shaky hand or even not allowing your camera enough time to auto focus on the object. Either way you could try a tripod or a bean bag to try and steady your shots. Even resting the camera against a fixed object can really make a difference with macro images IMO.

    Looks like you have a good eye for photography with the rose shot, just need to work on the focus a little more.
