First attempts with macro - would appreciate feedback
Lens: Tamron 24-75 Camera: K-r 
Posted By: thechumpen, 10-08-2013, 12:59 AM

Hi folks

I recently bought some macros extension tubes. Plan is to use them with reverse macro with an old A 28 lens that I bought. However, I was out and about the other day and tried out just the extension tubes with my Tamron 24-75 to try and get some experience. Posted some photos below so would be good to get feedback.

I took lots but these are the ones I'm happy with out of the many I took. Therefore would be good to get feedback as no doubt I've made lots of newbie errors. Don't hold back!

They have all had a bit of post processing in Lightroom to bring out colours etc but again feedback on that would be great.

First two are some glass panels I found in a garden display.

Then I tried out some flowers and shrubbery.
