    Playing around with my 70mm macro a little tonight and came up w/ this. Not quite what I was looking for, but in the ballpark. I'd love some suggestions for improvement and critique/comments.

    I appreciate the comment and welcome to the forum. You'll find that the term "expert" is relatively subjective so don't let that stop you from commenting.

    The 1st one is amazing!, i love it. great job. I love the fact that the dof puts the rose out of focus, yet.. you have a strong image of what is back there just by lookin at the detail in the water droplets. Beautiful work.

    I like them both for different reasons.
    I like the concept of #1, an un-natural arrangement that looks...natural...doe's that make sense.
    I like #2 for the technically superior reflection, though the composition is nice, its less interesting.
    Improvement ? they're both tidy, probably an as sharp a reflection of the red Flower? in the three droplets, as is recorded in the yellow flower image.
    Maybe the leaf/stem could be more definative in #1 aswell.
    Heck, sometimes you have to be harsh to see a way to improve, thats gotta be complimentry:grumpy:

    These are great start and I do like them, but I wish they had just a little less noise and slightly sharper. I'm by no means an expert, so this is just an opinion. The thing with macro work is everything is so close that you sharpness is critcal.
