    Great use of light and excellent compositions.

    I really, really, enjoy the use of dead space in #1 making it my favorite of this set. Though I'd happily look at any of them anytime :thumbup:

    Really excellent.

    That's not a combo I would have considered. Interested in the extension tubes and setup you're using also.

    I have the Kenko extensiontubes, so Autofokus and everything works just fine also.

    Wow. At this rate, you're going to need model releases from those bugs.

    I don't really like insects in general (and I hate spiders), but hey there was small mushroom there! The lighting in your shots is just amazing. And I love the special bokeh of the 45 1.8 (but who doesn't?). Will post a little flower pic, I guess.

    Beautiful lighting in the mushroom :)

    That cow(?) strikes me like those cartoon character where the designer tried mixing features of the voice actor with the animal. It somehow looks like human's face in expression.
    Maybe it's just me...

    I really like the first and last shots. Both for different reasons.
    Thanks for posting.
