That is one awesome macro. The best close up I have seen on here for some time. The detail is just phenomenal. Great work. It gets my user award for sure!!

Thanks Mia, me too.
Thanks Cole, yes, the compact is working ok after dropping it at Focus but after using a DSLR I can't take serious photos with a 3mp compact.
I don't seem to drop money, just cameras Sad

You get your wallet out maybe? Lol!! Remember this well mate. Nicely taken with my never used ex lens!! Get an E bay account, sell those lenses and get that D3!! You know it makes sense!!

You need to get possessions away from home cover on your home insurance! Then get one of those protecter covers for your camera!

Take care, hope you'll be shooting new stuff soon.

Thanks guys.
The D300 would do me Phil but changing all my gear would be too expensive, anyway, I'm sure Sony will be right up there soon so I'll probably stay put.

I do have that cover Jon but I live above and behind our business premises and the policies are all combined, they told me I'd lose about 400 no claims bonus if I claimed, then probably 300 the next year, then 200 the next etc, so it wasn't worth making a claim in this case.

Thanks Andrew.

Firstly this is an excellent macro shot and I'm sorry to hear about your camera. A bit late to offer suggestions I know but I dropped my camera once and ever since I have never used it without the neck strap until I could put it back in it's bag. A devastating experience, I've been there myself. Hope everything works out for you.

Great shot indeed. Best of luck with whatever you end up with - at least you've got a full summer's practice ahead!

Thanks Geoff, I was travelling to North Wales for a photography holiday and had the camera on the back seat of the car between some bedding for safety as I stopped to take photos on the way and didn't fancy taking the lens off an on to put it in my bag every time.
When I got to the caravan and unloaded the car, I grabbed the bedding, forgetting that the camera was safely wrapped inside it and it fell out onto the tarmac, only dropped about 2 feet and landed on the corner and it hasn't worked properly since despite being in for repair about 4 times.

A marvellous Macro Geof . In 40 shades of green . A great composition .xx Into my favourites xx

Poor Boy you must feel devastated without a Camera . Is it not insured ? Mine is now after I dropped my 90m Tamron and it wasn't on my insurance . It all is now !!

Thanks Mavis, Sony have agreed to send me a compensation cheque for 416 so I've accepted, had no choice really, no point having my camera back if it's not focussing properly.
I'll have separate insurance for my next one.
