    Well I bought a canon EF 100mm f2.8 macro, and am loving it so far. MAcro lenses are great fun!

    Here are a couple of my first shots with it

    i like themm especially the cactus. looks like ur piano needs some dusting. i think the dust particles kinda ruin the picture. of course this is all coming from a noob though...

    A little more light on #2 (possibly back-lit?) and a bit of crop off the right side and I'd REALLY like that one :)

    You're going to have a blast with that lens. I love mine.

    I have a different point of view, the piano is my fav, the dust creates a "forgotten music" theme.

    I have the same lens and like playing around with it too.

    I like how clear the piano on is it shows how sharp it is when you can see the dust.

    #2 is my favorite but it use a diferent background.

    Yes I tend to agree with the background, and looking at it now it does seem a tad dark. Pity, I know now how I could do it better but the thing got thrown out yesterday because it is broken and leaking green liquid everywhere!



    Yeah, I didn't notice the dust until I had the pic on my computer, but then I decided that I quite like it that way as well.

    1. Pretty good, next time try having the whole leaf in focus.
    2. A bit dark and the WB might be off, unless those are your walls.
    3. A bit dark but nice. Next time wipe the dust off ;)
    4. Best of the set
    That lens is killer, enjoy it :D

    I like the last one the best - it shouts "ouch". :)

    #1 is my favorite, but possibly cropped a little tighter to show leaf and nothing else, the bit at the top left and right is slightly distracting to me. Have fun with that lens!
