My DIY macro lens is really beginning to show what it is capable of now that I have the delicate manual focus nailed.

Depth of field at straight through 90 mm -2.8 is extremely shallow, so choosing that critical point is very important.

I like the faded out edges, they add to the drama and effect.

These are seed heads from a Snapdragon plant.....seen up close they are extremely skull-like

I include both the colour mono versions.

seriously, an amazing and yes, dramatic macro

Mono adds a nice touch of menace.
