Tom -- remember it's a macro so don't be too stand-offish -- your lens can take us "inside" the flower to where there are great patterns and bits of detail. And also try to off-center your subjects (look up our assignment on the rule of thirds).

Try posting your shots at about 860 pixels on the longest dimension (not 500) -- it makes it easier to see how focus is and the details in the shot.

Thanks Mark. They are the large crystals for dissolving slowly in coffee, about 5-10mm long. Shot using the Tamron 90, with the crystals on a piece of glass (actually a microscope slide). Lit from above in #1, and from below in #2.

jagged -- either those are very large crystals or you've used a very high magnification -- a microscope perhaps?

Either way they're amazing pics. #1 looks a bit like an asteroid in space .

@dopol - I think that's a cranefly. They are quite photogenic in a way, aren't they? - but their legs always seem to be in the way Well done for getting a nice sharp view of the head and those hunched up 'shoulders'
