    I agree! My best advice would be to read everything you can. Read this forum, books, everything. And PRACTICE.

    I agree. The coolness factor does it for me!

    Here's a couple I just snagged today. Nothing special, but I haven't posted much lately. Still with the D40x. The D700 gets here tomorrow

    Good effort. I've yet to take a good one of those even though they are the most common plant in my garden.
    I can never seam to get the centre bright enough without blowing the petals - I even tried a penlight torch just on the centre.
    I have huge depth of field issues and what to focus on, I think your choice of F16 was good given the topic.
    Not being Rooze I sometimes try F22 in circumstances like this since I like the bigger depth of field even though the lens is diffraction limitted on the sharpest areas.
    How did you stop the wind problems at 2 sec's?

    Thanks for the comments. I also tried it at F22, but didn't like the results as much. BTW, I used the recently acquired Tammy 90mm f/2.8 macro. I'm really liking that lens.

    How did I stop the wind problems....I took the flower inside the house, and placed it by a window to get natural light. Is that cheating?

    First time I shot with a D700 / 70-200 f2.8 VR II combo.

    Now I know what the hype is all about.
