Hi Rex,

All taken with a 100mm Canon macro lens - it is an extremely impressive lens!

Awesome again Greg....any exif data?

Also, don't know if you noticed, there's a speck of dust or summin near his jacksie (on your sensor maybe....) that could've been cloned out :wink:

Even the bristles are pin sharp on him/her....great shot!

Hi Rex,

f#22, 1/125s, ring flash, ISO 200. I noticed the speck as soon as soon as I posted it up - cloned out now on the master copy :D

Hi Rebel702,

That shot's got some great colours! But it's been sharpened waaaaay too much. Needs to be toned down a bit. 8)

Mark,

Thanks for the feedback. Just learning with PS Elements so I don't have a delicate touch yet. Here is a repost w/o any sharpening. Better or should it be somewhere inbetween?

C&C welcomed. Old dog learning new tricks.

Yeah it's much better now. Perhaps you could add a little bit (10-20% or something) but that's personal preference really.

Here's one I took this summer. It's hard to get close to these guys, especially since I've been (irrationally) scared of them since I was a child. I got stung 4 or 5 times on the hand once when I was little but for some reason when I'm photographing them I don't mind them as much.

EXIF:
Nikon D40
f/7.1
1/200 sec.
