Have you missed the focus? Nothing looks sharp.

Looks crisp 2/3 of the way up and 1/3 of the way in from the left. Probably a very wide aperture. Maybe experiment with multiple apertures in a shot.

I've been on FM for a while and am probably more of a lurker than a poster. I hadn't yet visited the Macro forum, but have an interest in macro photography and would like to become better at it.

This image was taken earlier this month at a local botanical garden. If I have the insect ID correct this is a damselfly.

Camera is 6D, lens is an adapted OM Zuiko mount 50mm f/3.5 there is no exif but I believe I was using f/11, photo is taken hand held, and camera mounted 430 EX II flash has been used.

I shot raw and processed in LR4, OM Zuiko files require more post process effort than many modern lenses IMHO.

Comments and critcism are welcome.

You certainly nailed the focus on the eyes, great effort.
I like the shot and the aperture. The pic is focussed nicely on the eye and the rest gradually fades out. . .I'm impressed.

Not quite macro, but pretty close!

Here is a recent shot:

Spiny Orb Weaver Spider by VTHokiEE06, on Flickr

Shot with flash and an extension tube, but I probably shot have gotten even closer to the spider.

What apertures are good to shoot with? I feel like I see significant DOF in some images and I wonder if the shots are stacked, or just f32?

Nice work on the bees in a very tricky flower. The second image has been posted about one third too wide.

Resize it at 1000 or 1200 pixels wide and upload again (edit the post, second image, reloading the resized version in the same slot). I wouldn't worry too much, as it is not that unusual for an oversized image to be posted, but the image can be better appreciated if it doesn't overflow the screen.

Here are some pictures I took while at a local arboretum. Gear was an Olympus E-M1 with the 60mm macro lens. All pictures were shot handheld with various settings (manual mode - adjusted ISO, shutter and aperture as needed). I obviously didn't (wasn't able to) get super close, but thought I'd post it here just the same to see what the general consensus is.

C&C very welcome.

I find the cactus slightly uncomfortaable to view. Can you try inverting the frame?

The first yellow flower has good lighting. The second one has distractions in the background. Maybe crop out that upper left, other yellow flower portion? If you can tone down the highlights on the twigs that would help.

Harold,

Thank you very, very much for your feedback.

Here's the inverted version of the cactus. Could you elaborate a bit on why it's uncomfortable to view? Just curious.



You're absolutely correct about the yellow flower in the upper right corner. I'm not sure how best to reduce the bright branch in the background. Here's one iteration:

Even I am surprised as how much better the inverted cactus is. The original version gave me the sensation of being suspended, upside down, over the plant, not ideal with a cactus! At the very least, it looked like you had been bending over the plant and shooting back towards you legs. Maybe you did but keep me out of it!

For me, the cropping of the yellow flower makes the background highlights less prominent anyway. What I had in mind was some kind of cloning of darker background colour and/or some bluring.

A tip, based on experience: when doing any such cloning, turn up the brightness to check for any remaining artifacts from the changes before readjusting the brightness for uploading. If you don't do this, its for sure that someone else here will and they will tell you.

I did bend over the cactus and shoot towards my legs. Good catch. Glad the inversion makes you feel safe.

I'll try cloning to reduce the brightness of the background (and keep your tip in mind). Thank you very much for the feedback.
