This is using the largest extension tube that turns the 50 prime into
1:1 macro. Cold and windy today, but I like this rather impressionist spin on a flower:



Flower is about one inch across. Using the Oly e300.

Thanks, Attila, I was hoping it would be perceived that way! Wink

I LOVE these "swirly" macro images! Very very nice indeed. Macro seems to always allow the "bokeh" to really be emphasized.

NICE shot, Bill.

nice and artistic Bill
1/30s @ 1:1 maybe too slow without anti shake reduction

Thanks, Poilu. I've taken many photos in sharp focus at 1/30th, but here
I was combatting wind. Pretty stupid to try and take macro photos in the
wind, and Poilu, you can't fix stupid! Laughing

Lovely composition and effect. I'd like it a touch sharper, but it works well as it is.
