    I like the sharpness on this one. It should be titled Thinking Hayfever.

    I like the composition of this one. The statue in the background adds some imagination.

    Thanks Prospero yes I was suprised that the grey patio background seemed to work as well. It just goes to show that it's worth taking several angles.
    Around every picture there's a corner & round every corner there's a picture
    - the fun's in finding them

    Tim nice title, the pollen has been high the last few days. That last bit of rain didn't damp it down much. Thanks for the comments it is suprising how even the slightest breeze makes these shots difficult to get. I had a lot of fuzzy out of focus ones too.

    Some more reverse macro shots. I have an old Olympus 50mm lens. I think I can get a little closer if I mount it backwards on the front of my Pentax 50mm. I'll try that out soon.

    Lukas, the last two are really nice. How do you attach the reversed lens? And how does focussing work?

    Thanks Adam! The last two are my favorites too. The are mounting rings for this. I have one that allows me to mount my 50mm lens backwards onto the body. There are also ones that allow you to mount one lens backwards onto the front of another lens (I don't have that ring yet). It can be a little bit of a pain because everything is manual and there's only one focus plane (at the min. focus distance). On the flip side it's way cheaper than buying another lens.

    Nice photos. I really like the detail in those Phill D. Here are a few I took today. I know I already posted some similar to the first two but this time the flower actually fell off so I was able to position it where I wanted and get a little better angle, lol.

    Lukas those last 2 shots rock. they look like a landscape of some sort. mesmerising,.

    here are the colours of our beautiful country, the setting sun was kissing the yellow giving it an amazing glow. 300mmf4 captured the colours and the green contrast just beautifully. who needs a macro lens ?
