What an interesting thread and some really great inspirational shots there.


I've butchered a zoom lens and I reverse an EL Nikkor 50mm 2.8 on it - not up to the standard of the previous shots on this thread;

All taken hand held


Jumping spider - 3 shots stacked;




Robber Fly;




Nymph:




and a Shield bug;

Nice work, especially #3.

Excellent!

We've had a wet summer so there's lots of new moss:




Somewhere around 4.5x magnification; SMC Pentax 1:3.5 28mm reversed on the #2 manual tube and the helicoid tube at full extension. 65 shots stacked in Zerene Stacker, DMap with a bit of PMax, then some exposure editing in GIMP.

How about macro by fisheye? Taken with the K-5 II and the Takumar 17mm f4 Fisheye with a MFD of just under 8". The bloom of this wildflower is about the size of a half dollar coin.

Very sharp, and that is some amazing funky bokeh.

Thank you for your comments. I wasn't thinking macro when I bought this lens, but one of the reviewers in the PF Lens Reviews said his copy was "stupidly sharp" up close. So, I had to try it out. And I love the bokeh. To me that is an added bonus. I will definitely be experimenting with it some more.

Hello ! I just discovered this thread referred by chuck_c and very happy to have found it... macro with reversed lens is my next project this winter, so I think I'll have hours of pleasures to read all the info here... I saw some really good shots. Now I am doing macro mostly with my telephoto lenses, like this one:

I am very happy to have found this thread and looking forward to have some free time to start experimenting...
regards

It is a beautiful photo that has a 3d quality because of the interaction of nice bokeh and sharp focus on moth. Sorry to cause confusion.

OK, I see, no worries, I did not catch... because it's not really a moth, it's a butterfly, so I wasn't sure you were referring to this image
