    As per "popular request" (cough-cough), I once more resized and uploaded these photos of a dandelion which I tried to capture with the lens reversed so I'd get some macro photos, and I had THOUGHT I noted the focal lengths somewhere (my kit lens goes from 18-55mm, so at 18mm reversed, magnification is biggest, but also DOF is smallest (razor thin!)), but I haven't :(. So sorry.

    Real cool.
    I love 1 and 6 the most.
    1 for the "elderly" dandelion, and 6 look like fireworks.

    Tangerini, we can start negotiating a price then :greenpbl:

    And Ripnowell, I took off the lens, turned it around so that the part that usually sticks out is pushed against the hole in my camera body and the part with the thread sticks out. That gives quite a bit of magnification to all those who have a camera with interchangeable lenses (SLR or DSLR), but who don't have any macro lenses or macro whatevers. I held it to the camera tight and then had to focus with my body. Which means: swing (in minute bits) to and fro until I could see that what I wanted to have in focus was in focus, then I had to hold my breath, preferably keep my heart from beating, for focus is so razor thin then that even a heartbeat at the wrong moment can push the photo out of focus, and ... pushed the button.

    I did the same with this_fly - and for those I even wrote down the focal lenghts.
