Absolutely gorgeous!!!! :!:

How do you get such wonderful photos? Do you have a special lens or attachment to get those closeups? That really is a great camera, and you are a SUPERB photographer!

I just love the beauty that you capture!

:D
Some of the most beautiful things come in very small packages.

Hi MacroLuv,

Absolutely beautiful. He is really into his work isn't he. This is an example of why I highly value your advice.

No, this is just a simple small camera. But with a small sensor you can get closeups without any special lens or attachments (prerequisite: you must shot from very very short distance - it works in my case because I got many friends among little creatures :wink: ). :D Of course, quality is not as good as with dSLR and getting close is not always the best idea. Thanks for panegyrics but I only shot too much and then try to find a few interesting things. :wink:

Hmmmm... :-k Seems I'm attracting our young members. :D Lets calm down a little. I can tell you that experienced and skilled eye could find many imperfections in my photographs. Look at this and search for flowers or insects for example to see what a really professionals can do. Or see pages of our chief Tom Webster. :wink:

Yes I have noticed with a digi that has a small sensor it seems you have loads more DOF(you dont really, it just looks that way) and you can stick on a close up lens and get great shots that look cool but are quite simple!

Strictly speaking, must know that magnification does not depend on the sensor size since it is a lens characteristic. Crop factor is a way how sensor size is "involved". (lenses are smaller too) :D

You seem to have far more sunshine over there MacroLuv than we do in gloomy old Britain, also a far greater range of larger insects.
