    Hi, I've just joined this forum. I've posted an introduction (see siggy).

    Here's a picture of a tiny snail I found in the garden a while ago. It couldn't have been longer than 6mm. I took it with a reversed 50mm lens mounted on a Toshiba PDR-M61 (oldish p&s digital). You get a tiny dof like this. Sometimes that can be good though. This picture was more luck than judgement. :)

    yes, the small DOF that you get using the reversed lens technique is really bad but you get a huge enlargment though.

    great shot.

    Thanks for the replies. :)

    I found him crawling around the sink. We have a butler sink outside, it's like a Belfast sink by smaller and with taps built in. I scooped him up on an old bit of wood and took some pictures. He was moving fast and going everywhere. So that is why he's upside down.
