Nice shot. I've tried a bunch of times to get moon shots but can't get them to turn out. This one has some nice detail and well exposed.

Here's a shot I grabbed of my son today while testing the DOF of a f/1.4 lens I have for my NEX...not bad for 30+ year old manual focus lens...

Nubster, nice soft depth of field with that shot. Personally I feel that a mostly-desaturated color photo would have been more fitting, but I do think that the B&W does make the eyes stand out.

Here's a nice shot from yesterday in my neighbors' backyard. I'm taking care of their dog for a few days and they have quite a few bird feeders in their yard; this cardinal was about 20" away in a tree from where I was lying on the ground.



Taken with: Nikon D7000, 55-300mm Nikkor VRII

That's a nice capture. I think the reds could be more saturated, but nice shot and framing.

This is really a very small insignificant flower from a border plant in my backyard shot with a 60mm macro.

Wow what a great shot. Macro shots can make almost anything look good. The colors are great the celerity it superb. The only thing that's keeping me from saying that's a perfect shot is my eye is drawn towards the left side of the picture. Other then that great shot.

Here's a picture of one of my bromeliads I took the other day. It's shot with a crappy cannon powershot.

I like that photo! The light reflecting on the water inside the flower is very neat!
About the crappy camera, not everyone can afford a nice one, but you can do a lot with it!

Here is mine reverse lens macro (can't afford a macro lens even if I could $1,000.00 for a lens hurts)

55mm reversed lens

Huh? You can grab a really nice macro for $300 or less used.

The Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro Autofocus Lens for Canon is $450 new, and go for about $300 used and it's an excellent lens.

Ok, I have been looking and tamron has a lot of 60mm and 90mm lens going for $350 and $400. How good are the macro shots (if anyone can share a photo)? I'm just a bit nervous of spending the money and not getting what I'm expecting.

I never had the Tamron but the Canon 60mm is excellent.
