    Here's my flower pic to add to the bunch. Hope you all like it.

    Taken with my trusty Fujifilm s5000, handheld, macro on, 1/160 shutter speed and set to f3.2


    Tell me what you all think.

    Red rose bud

    Great shots folks and welcome to all the newcomers.

    Here is a red rose in bud. I didn't notice the water droplets at the time - such a pleasant bonus.

    Canon A80, handheld, macro mode, ap f/8.0, exp. 1/640s, exposure compensation -1.

    regards
    Wombat

    PS keep those shots coming

    Nice rose bud, Wombat. I can see from your settings that it must have been a very bright day out when you took that photo.

    Here's an Iceland Poppy taken with the Panasonic FZ5:

    F/4; 1/160; ISO 80

    Hi Wall - pleased you enjoyed the rose bud and yes you are quite correct it was midday on a cloudless day - thank goodness for exposure compensation.

    I liked the lighting on your iceland poppy - those shadows really do add a lot of drama and form.

    gstafleu - that is a lovely composition of the mallow flower and bud - very subtle colour and shape well captured.

    phistio - I find thistles tricky to shoot I usually miss the details you have captured so nicely. I notice you were on ISO 200 setting. I have been using this on my Canon A80 recently. Actually I turned it up to capture some bees on flowers and forget to turn it down again!!

    It really helps with my camera shake and when a breeze is moving the flowers. I am quite surprised just how much movement there can be and yet ISO 200 seems to cope. I am sure there is some loss in quality but better that, than a load of blurred shots.

    Really loving everyones photos here - thanks to all!
    This is sort of chat I guess ~ you may have heard me say that my A-200 has a strange sort of approach to macro and mention it's not the very best for super close ups.
    Well - here's a little flower - with my thumb for scale. This shot isn't as close as I can get.

    This is at about 50mm - getting close to the limit at 200mm zoom macro

    Finally - using 8mp resolution on the orig - I can make a substantial crop to get this: -
    Most flowers etc arn't this small - so mostly I've got it covered with the A-200 - the Oly C-740 goes in a lot closer but at wide angle - the result is about a 3rd larger image I guess.
    Any comments??
