G'day, mates. I've just joined the forum and these are my first photo uploads. I took them in my wife's garden here in Sydney a few days ago, using the Poor Man's Macro Lens technique. Your comments will be much appreciated. Thanks and best regards.

I think the third and the fourth shots a lot! The soft effect on the fourth works well, as does the sharpness of the third The first two could use some levels adjustment, IMO.
