    These are very nice. I would normally ask for a bit more DOF but on alot of these it works. A lot of them seem like they could be a bit sharper though.. first one is the best.

    Well, I think you have every reason to be proudly presenting some of your newer work (at last, under which stone have you hidden all that while???), and I am the first to know how hard it is to create enough DOF in macro photography ... in order to stop down enough in order to get more DOF, you need oodles of light, and please: no wind!, and it might still not be enough. I've been there and done that, too, for flower macros are among my favourite motifs.

    Would it surprise you much if I told you that I like the delicacy of Photo 3 very much AND the background colour ;) ;) ;) ???

    hahah thank ya =P
    true, it was a bit of a dry spell, school was slightly hectic and all that (we are shooting a 90 minute film in digital video dear lord) but i recently joined a photo class as well so im getting my time any way i can =P

    and really? i would have thought you would have been all over 4, 5, and 6
    3s color is a bit more on the brownish side...

    and the delicacy of 3 is probably because it was about half the size of a dime hahah

    Have I said 3 when I really meant to say 4?
    Though - despite the bit of brownish colour in 3 - I also like that one.
    But ... ahem ... got the numbers wrong and really meant to specifically pick out 4 as my favourite. :oops:
