Hi! I recently gave a it of macro photography a go with my D3100. I have only had a DSLR for a couple of months, so I am still pretty new to the whole thing. I am enjoying it though.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Just curious why take a photo of the flowers in front of the mirror.
The flowers by themselves would make a good subject. Just put them somewhere bright and zoom in on a flower as close as possible. Try a few different settings with and without flash. See how much detail you can extract from the centre of the daffodil.

Having a macro lens helps see pic below, but even if you don`t you should be able to extract plenty of detail.

Hi Max,
Thanks for your comment. I was just trying different compositions, and I ended up quite liking it. I don't have a macro lens, or a decent zoom - only the 18-55mm kit, which isn't really suited to macro, so I had to think of something different.
Really like your shot by the way, great detail.
