    Here's a little shot I tried with my Nikon F1.8 AI lens and a reversing adapter. It's just a £20 clock I have :) I desaturated the image a bit, and sharpened it in the GIMP. It's not really much, just a test. Enjoy! C&C welcome.

    is it not a little bit out of focus and unlevel?

    i am always a little wary of macros as they don't mean much more often than not....just a test though eh?

    Yeah, I see what you mean... but hey, it was just a test.

    I agree, it is out of focus. However, there wasn't really much I could do: I had the lens on its minimum aperture and got it focused as well as I could. I'm not sure if it is unleveled, though. I was taking the photo at quite an angle to the clock.

    Thanks for all the input!
