This is my first attempt at Macro..
I am not exactly sure if these are Macro or Closeups.. this is as far as my camera (Sony H5) can go... without any lens,
Please let me know how I can do this better, postprocessing included..
here goes..

I like Photo 3 here and would definitely call that one a "macro", it reminds me of the hibiscus blossom I tried to photograph in summer, in the reversed lens method.

The ant fight is nice, but the photo is a bit blurry ... is what we see a crop out of an originally larger frame?

Oh! the woes of not having a tripod!! had to do all that after freezing myself in liquid nitrogen!;)

yes #3 was a hibiscus just abt to bloom..
and the ant fight is not exactly a fight.. but "AtomAnt" carrying its dead-half brother, had my nose to the ground trying to follow such an active thing.. sheesh!
have to save up some for a tripod.. just getting started..

Well done for your starters - macro is fun isnt it.
#1 one needs some contrast to come alive. I know the levels are correct, but try taking the Shadow up to 30-50 and see the difference.
I think #2 also needs some more contrast
- so my vote is for #3
