Four stunning images, as they are all so good I could not pick a favourite. Well done.

A wonderful set, Alan, each one worthy of its own upload. If I have to choose, then V.4 gets my vote. Carol

Absolutely superb macro floral shots, Alan: having scanned back and forth amongst them I can't really select a winner so they'll have to share my only vote, although each deserves star billing.

Excellent detail Alan and the colour is beautiful. I really must save up for the 90mm macro lens. How do you find the new K30?

Excellent. At the price it is at the moment it's got to be the best value in it's class on the market. It's a joy to use and has very low noise at high ISOs.
