    These are pretty good. Nice and sharp. I think they would benefit from more DOF tho.

    Thanks for the comment!
    I agree with the DOF, but sadly when using a reversal lens setup thats about the best you can get.. I guess it is its own style in a way.

    Ha. So my first impression was right: these are reverse lens macros. Yes, they only give you razor thin DOF, no matter what, but I still like the outcome! Very nice. The third here is the funniest :D - I like that one a lot! (Well, I like them all, really, but that one makes me laugh).

    Very nice indeed, 1 and 3 are my personal faves, but all great shots, and well done on getting the right bits in focus :).

    Yeah, thats tough. You can only Focus Stack to address it.

    @Lafoto - thanks, usually that one would not have been a keeper for me but it put a smile to my face as well :)

    @tpe - thanks, it took a whole lot of rocking, patience, and timing.. Sadly these bugs do not stand still.

    @TC - I have never heard of focus stack? unless you mean just stacking lenses?

    You basically take multiple images at different focus points, then merge them all into a final image. Ofcourse nothing can be moved, subject or camera. I think TPE who posted in this thread could offer advice on this as I think he has mastered it.

    Check out this:
