    So I got stuck at home today because of snow, so I went outside the house and took some photos... The only thing that pissed me off, and I'm still pissed off about it, is that I don't know how, but I didn't realize that my ISO was set to 800!!! ARGH!!!! So the photos look a bit too noisy for my taste... Luckly tho I realized that I got "Noise Ninja" for my b-day a while ago, so I used that, and it worked like a charm... Photos look much better after running them couple times thru Noise Ninja.

    Anyway, here are best 3 I picked :)

    I take it you took these in natural light? I may have to be a copy cat and take my old MF macro for a walk if it freezes over here again. Cool shots.

    Yes. I just went outside the house, and they were hanging from the roof. Had to use a tripod tho. So hard to shoot without IS :p You should, I love macro :)

    Thank you!

    I'm actually doing a photography project for a class that involves the life cycle of water, and I tried to get some cool icicle shots, but I never thought if using macro. I definetely want to go try it out now, it just sucks cause I can't meter through my old nikkor.

    Are you shooting digital? Use the histogram on your LCD for exposure, lack of metering is no reason to not have a little fun.

    Yeah, macro is definately the way to go. It takes more time, but in the end I think results are much better :)

    Good luck! :)
