There's mileage in it for me Brian. I think this is a great shot and really like the composition and colour.

Definitely mileage Brian, very soft and subtle a bit like my attempt with the Iris. I think this works better.

Makes a fascinating and beautiful abstract image. This sort of image is one of the reasons I want to get into macro work myself. Well done Brian.

Smashing, I thought it was maybe glass from the thumbnail. This shot conjures up ice, water, glass, clouds, feathers, fountains... gets the imagination going Smile

Thanks Linda & Mary. I'm glad you & others saw the possibilities in this image. Its too easy to stick with what you know will work, but when you try something different it can be worrying! Smile

Although abstract it has a form and structure which forms an ordered composition together with a harmonising colour palette - so yes definate mileage Brian - steve

Very disappointed in you, I clicked it before I realized it was a flower, A FLOWER! Brian 1208!
Being you, I was positive it was a fantastic macro of a gnats eyelashes.

Patricia, I was afraid I may have offended you - sorry, the gnats wouldn't pose as their mascara had run - LOL

Beautiful shot. How did you use the reversed lens?
brian1208 Plus
12 11.0k 12 United Kingdom
28 May 2004 12:29PM
Thanks for commenting Alan. You can get a simple male:male converter which screws in to the end of the main lens. The reversed lens then screws into the converter. That's all there is to it. You need to use fast lenses for the best results otherwise you lose too much light. You have to use manual focus as well but, on the 300D, the auto-exposure works OK.

Hope that helps.
