I think the improvement is pretty striking.

... well i'm not one to do macro photography considering my lens options (which consists of only a 35mm f/2.0), but i found this guy on my balcony, and he could barely move because of the cold... so i brought him indoors, and put him under a lamp to warm him up...

... while i was waiting for him to recover i thought, why not... let me give macro a try... here are the results:

I like the photos, Thomas and cybermystic.

A general question to you guys, do you sharpen your photos or are your close ups naturally sharp?

Nice pics Thomas, and nice DoF too :) Wish I could find a bug subject that'll keep still...

My pics up to about a week ago were never sharpened. Only since I experimented with Elements do I try a little sharpening to help crisp it up some more.

thanks popo... just like you, i've only recently started sharpening my photos, and i'm still experimenting with it, so if anyone has some pearls of wisdom on the subject... i'm all ears :)

Always need to sharpen a JPEG straight out of the camera.
Best,
Greg

Taken today (12th September 2008) very up close and personal. An uncropped full frame macro of a bee on a Marigold - f#22.

This image is a 50% crop of the previous image and has been processed from the RAW data (the previous image was processed from JPEG captured data).

Even closer in :shock:

Greg, What lens are these taken with? Do you use tubes or anything - they're awesome mate!

Here's the best I can do with my Nifty.....
