Weed or Work of Art? No. 3

End of series! I'm really having fun with the new macro lens. So far the performance has been great, although the auto focus is a little pesky. However, for close macro work, manual focus is better anyway.

This looks really good! I am having a hard time telling if this is a photo or a painting, and I would hang it on my wall any day!

@Ragnar: Thank you for your comments! I'm going to see how it looks printed and then I might just hang it.

This is really fun. I love macro too. It is my favorite thing to do. Manual focus is the way to go. Nice photo!

@Shelle: Thanks for the comments. I agree, for close macro work is a must.

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

Looks like it's both!!! Very Cool !!!! I need to get me a real macro lens.......any suggestions......

@Susan: Thank you Susan! I have the Canon 100mm 2.8L macro. The L version of the 100mm macro came out last year. It is an excellent lens but pricey. I shoot with a 5D, which is full frame so I opted for the 100mm macro. Canon also has a 60mm macro, which on your 40D would be the 35mm equivalent of 90mm. So you might want to take a look at that lens. Again, since I’m shooting full frame, I did not consider any other brand lens.

now you've transformed those weeds into some space bodies. Great Job.
