Nice attempts.
Good colours, perhaps a little oversaturated/overexposed on some - lighting looked to be a challenge with these captures.
Watch the camera shake.
But good effort.

Thanks for the comments! These were back lit for the most part, but there was no camera shake, due to a sturdy tripod and cable release... Perhaps the DOF was a bit too shallow?

There is a blurriness in the images that may still be camera shake if you didn't use the 2sec shutter delay. The mere mirror mechanism can shake the camera set up on a tripod significantly enough to blur an image, esp. when using a telephoto lens.

Hmm. I usually use the delay, and likely did here, but not sure... It was a bit breezy and I had to pick a time to trip the shutter, so probably subject movement. Hope there is nothing wrong with my lens.

No, it doesn't look like anything is wrong with the lens.
The results aren't as bad as I'm making them out to be...
It may just be the combination of overexposure (in small parts of the photos) and thin DoF that is tricking me.

Wind and macros don't mix well - they look a little soft but well framed.

I like the details and the colours.
