Oh my! Those are nice! If you hadn't said what the ballpoint was, I probably never would've guessed. Interesting treatment on the flies - I assume that was done in pp, what did you do to get those freaky highlights? It's a lovely sharp macro by the way. What lens? I like them all, but I must admit I have a thing for insect pictures. Nice work!

For the flies, I really don't remember what I did. The original had a lot of green and yellow, and I think I completely desaturated the green and yellow and red channels and pumped up the rest. I brought out some details in the shadows with the shadows/highlights thing in CS2.

The lens was a reverse mounted Sigma 10-20mm. Magnification was probably around 4x.

Thanks!

I love the 4th and 5th ones the best. All photos are well composed and framed with impact in the shots.

The insect photo was not only X rated but so sharp with great colour rendition.

Must be DFA 100 macro?

Nope. My explanation of the fly shot is in my previous post. Sigma 10-20mm reverse mounted, around 4x magnification.
