    just some test shots I did a couple of days ago with a 300mm lens plus a close up lens screwed onto it (currently my only macro option).


    composition wise they are not brilliant ...

    Hey not bad ... are these full frame? Very good DOF on that yellow Daisy. What was your F/Stop?

    f/25 on all of them except #3 which is f/18

    full frame in both senses: almost zero cropping in postprocessing and also taken on a full frame 35mm sensor ;)

    These look pretty good. So about how far away were you when you shot these?

    not too close as it is a 300mm lens ... I would guess around 20-30cm.

    in terms of macro these images are pretty close to 1:1.

    The blossoms in the last ones are really tiny ... they are measured in a couple of mm only.

    The second is by far my favorite...the only thing that bothers me is the blue blurb happening on the right ;)

    Impressive detail on all of them :)

    Yeah, I was wondering if that close up lens affected the focusing distance at all.
