    After reading a thing about macro shots online, using water and an old CD I thought I would have a play, here are my pics:

    My favourite of the day

    And this was my first attempt which has nicer colours but the image quality wasnt as good.

    I did a bit of noise reduction and gausian blur to the pics, that was about it though.

    Very nice. What setup were you using? My macro does not get that close.

    Its the Canon Powershot S3IS
    Manual mode with Super macro turned on
    Exposure 1/1000 because I have a VERY unsteady hand and I was too close to use a tripod
    Aperture F2.7
    And I was almost touching the water drop I was so close.

    Thanks for all the comments, I love the rainbow colours that are created with this

    Wow so very pretty!

    I never knew I could go THAT up close with a Canon S3IS.

    I'll have to try some close up shots on things now with super macro.

    I have no idea how to use my manual mode yet lol.

    Thanks again for the coments

    Indieme, I love the bench pic on your flikr page, very nice

    I keep finding more and more I can do with the S3, I just got to practice with the flash so I can take pictures later in the day with the sun isnt in the house.

    These are nice!
    I feel inclined to "steal your idea" :D
    I like 3 and 4 best of the little series.
