    I had just bought my CoolPix s210 and headed out with my other half to take some photos at Presquile Provincial Park. This was my very first macro and I was happy that it was actually in focus. I posted it up on Flickr and only received 2 comments, one being my other halfs. Other than not being bright what else is wrong with it? I submitted this photo into a "What's wrong with my picture?" group and still didn't receive any comments. I've taken quite a few macro shots since then but would appreciate any feedback that I can get for future reference.

    Here's the definition of macro photography taken from Wikipedia,

    "In recent years, the term macro has been used in marketing material to mean being able to focus on a subject close enough so that when a regular 6×4 inch (15×10 cm) print is made, the image is life-size or larger."

    A few of the berries should fill the frame.

    Thanks a bunch everyone. I guess I'm so used to postings on Flickr which classify a lot of shots which are not "full frame" as macros. I would definitely like to expand my photostream and add macros at some point :)
