    Hi Rob! This is a great shot. I am hoping to get my macro lense this spring. Sandra from Canada.

  • mine is an old ashaghi 50mm 1.4, with my camera being a crop dslr the lens delivers a 4:1 ratio. Everything is huge, it is a totally manual lens on my nikon though cost arount £75 or $95.

    its definataly worth considering though, keep in touch and let me know how you get on with it, I may be able to provide some help!

    Hi Rob! There is a challenge right now in the Gorgeous Flower Cards that I recommend you Join the Group then enter this piece. The challenge is for “Macro Magic” shots. Here is the link: http://www.redbubble.com/groups/gorgeous-flower...
    Good luck and see you there. I entered my yellow begonia I took this on the macro setting as I yet have to purchase my Macro Lens as I was telling you prior.
