    Hey guys, I had to walk home from the mechanics yesterday after having the car towed there, cos it broke down on me. I had my camera with me so I took some snaps on the walk home, and this one was probably the best. C&C quite welcome. Btw, I wish I could have gotten closer as this was just done with the 18-200mm.

    Nice and sharp, shot of a ladyBUG dude :p

    I wonder how it would look if you selectively colored only the ladybug and leave the rest of the photo B&W or sepia.

    Really like the colours! Did you do any post-processing on it? Thanks!

    neat shot, nice and clear! Would of loved a closer view, but like you said, you were lens-limited. :)

    Thanks so much for all the kind words guys, I really appreciate it!

    gabrielh, yeah actually I did the slightest HDR conversion which I forgot to mention (I do it to any photo I can, not for the effect but just for more realistic looking colours).

    Apart from that I just did a bit of curves adjustments, and noise removal with noise ninja.

    Bromius, over here in Australia the 18-200 VR (fits on the D90, etc) costs $999. Everything is so expensive here really. I'm getting the 60mm 1:1 1.8 macro today so yay! Expect closer shots :p.

    it almost looks like i can reach out and touch it. i dont think its necessary to do the selective whatnot IMO. and your lady bugs look different than the ones where i live
