    At least I'm pretty sure that's what they are. :smile:

    Taken via my ghetto macro setup of an OM 28mm 3.5 reverse mounted to my G5. Focusing via shuffling the camera back and forth on a mini-tripod on top of a moveable object. Sad really. But I do love the magnification achieved and the cost at ~10$.

    One unfortunate aspect of stopping down to f11-16ish range is that I had a few dust spots to clone out. Maybe it's time to pull out the ol bulb blower.

    C&C always welcome.

    I love ghetto setups. You can have a lot of fun with them.

    Nice photos! Try to add some ghetto diffused flash for even more fun :)
