    I grabbed a quantaray 2x teleconverter for my d200 and 105mm 2.8 micro lens, and here are some shots with the combo. This quantaray really isnt that bad for ten bucks!!! No pp, because the laptop is still down.

    You posted them at 1am !!(at least by UK timings) ;)

    And no they are not bad, they are infact quite interesting and I do like the overall tone of colour that you have there. I would say ease back a bit from f20 - especaily with a 2*TC your diffraction effect is going to kick in a bit earlier and I would say f13 should be your smallest aperture if you want to avoid softer fullsize results as a result of diffractoin *you can of course get a coin and do some test shots at varying apertures and compare them to see where and when the quality dips too low for your standards.

    I saw your post! Hey, I like them! I especially like the last two. Now when I see moths and other bugs I get excited too but flowers are my favorite when it comes to Macro. I just got into Macro myself. It's a lot of fun. Looking forward to more!

    When you get your laptop back up and running, try messing with the WB settings on these shots if you shot in RAW. #4,6 for me :)

    ^^ Yeah i really need to. Number four came out rather orange-ish for my liking. Sadly they were in jpeg, because i didnt have the raw software(also on my laptop). Ill do some retakes sooon.
