    Greetings all! I have always enjoyed photography, but this is my first foray into anything other than basic snapshots. Both pictures were taken with my non-SLR digital. No aftermarket lenses or filters. All criticism, suggestions, and opinions are welcome! I hope the pictures aren't overly large.

    First is of a few synthetic stones, taken probably ten minutes after I found the "macro" setting on my camera.

    The second is about twenty minutes after I found the feature, walked right out beside my driveway and took a few bee pics. This is my favorite.

    I like the second one, the bee is for the most part nice and sharp.

    I like the Bee shot too :)

    With the first picture, if you could use like a whiter background? the colours would probably stand out more.

    If that 1st one was shot on white paper (or something white) you need to use custom white balance.

    Cool Bee shot.

    Thank you for your replies! I will play with a whiter background and see what I can do. Thanks again!
