The lighting on the second shot with the glasses is ideal, it allows for a softness on this attractive lady's skin. Well done!

Excellent!

A few more of the imperial city from an early afternoon walkabout around the Perfume River, it was a rare free afternoon when we didn't have any "family event" obligations . This time with the 21mm ltd.

Thanks! I've been only in the most northern part of Norway that is accessible by car from Finland, but yeah, it's a really beautiful indeed.

I really like that Dakota5 shot of yours. There's just something hypnotic about the eyes of the model.

Saw a beautiful, complex, well-worn mural yesterday in Montreal. I had the new-to-me Sigma 50mm Macro with me, so I thought I'd see how it inspired me. Some of the results below...

Alright, I think the following is the macro shot I am most proud of since I started doing macro. Not necessarily the "best", but damn, 6:1 handheld single frame of a live, healthy jumping spider. Perhaps not yet in Thomas Shahan territorry, but I'm pretty stoked! (And for the arachnophobes in the room: I'm sorry - it's a really really small and harmless spider!)

Shot with a Pentax-M 150mm F/3.5 coupled with a reversed Sigma Superwide II 24mm F/2.8. Uncropped. Frame is under 4mm wide. Cross-posted to the "Thematic: Spiders" thread.

Thanks Richard! That dragonfly was super skittish, it kept taking off whenever I would get too close but luckily it seemed to have an affinity to the old dried up flower stalk of our Aloe plant and would come back. I just had to move slowly and it was fine after that.

Here is another shot of it with the 100WR and available light.



I like the 100WR, I had one back when I had a K7 but sold it because I wasn't really doing much macro however I soon regretted it and ended up picking up a 90mm tamron locally via craigslist for a super cheap price. The tamron is a great lens even at its retail price and has the benefit of a focus limiter, furthermore I didn't have any issues with its image quality whatsoever but I missed the design, size and metal lens body construction of the 100WR so eventually someone here on PF was getting rid of one for a deal I couldn't refuse and so I re-acquired it and have no intentions of ever getting rid of it again

That is some crazy magnification and a nice capture! Just curious is it better to reverse lens or stack tubes to increase magnification? I ask because I might be interested to try my hand at high magnification macro sometime.
