SMB psalm, Very hard to work with moving subjects. Difficult to focus. This shot took about an hour of trial and error. It is an UW image taken with a Nikon D2xs, Lens Baby in an Aquatica housing.

SMB This was taken with a Lens Baby and +6 diopter.
Just another way to do close ups.

Can't wait to see what you take with them.

I will try to go out tomorrow and get some more pictures from the park if the weather is good.

150EH Thanks, I think 2 & 4 were taken with an Olympus E3 and a 50mm f2, and 1,3, & 5 with an Olympus E510 and the same lens.

SMB Back to flowers.
This is another Lotus shot with a Nikon 70-200mm lens, +3 diopter and 20mm extension tube, available light on a tripod.
(When I look at the enlarged image it is not as sharp, looses something on importing.)

Nice Dragon fly!

SMB I think Kenko has a very good set and they are the ones I have used for several years. 12, 20, and 36mm for around $200. They are pretty rugged and you may be able to find a used set.
This is a 105mm Macro lens shot with just a bit of fill flash. Did not get the light on the head and the background a little to busy.

Patriot I heard that Kenko was some of the best extension tubes but they are really expensive. Are there any like them for a lower price?

Those are some amazing photos there!! Number 2 and 4 are by far my favorite with 4 taking the cake. May I ask what did you use?
