I have mentioned before that the main reason I bought the G11 was for its close focusing ability of only 1cm in macro mode.

Very well spotted. this is emerging rust, at a young but promising age.
yes, you have to get close enough. To record important detail like - why is where one bit of blank metal- and to asses different types of rust:
there is the grainy sand type, abit like Chris chin when he saves on razorblades, the apple by type, with big layers peeling of and the slate type ( fine layers.)
Not to forget the different types of rust intruders, like paint Smile

25cm/10 inches approx. on my screen, Mick. I think the G11 is actually an enlarger Wink
Can't hang around to chat this morning. It's p***ing with rain and I have to go out.
You might say I have been galvanised into action, unlike the two screws in this pic that have not been galvanised at all!
