Thanx guys, I do have a question. I am pretty new to photography and new to macro as well. These were taken at a 2.8, should I have gone to 4 or 5.6 to get a bit more clarity or leave as is. I kinda get confused and really not too sure as what to do. Thanx, and any advice at any time is appreciated.

you could definately use more DOF.i use flash,and shoot around f/16 most of the time to maximise DOF..

Thanx, I'll keep it in mind. For some reason I always think that 2.8 is the best and I should shoot everything in 2.8.

Most lenses give peak resolution around F5.6 to F8 in normal use but for macro you do tend to want more DOF most of the time and often use them in the range F8-F16 (light and ISO permitting).
