Good shot, Ben! I would have preferred to take his photo away from grass though. Bufo melanostictus, Asian Common Toad.
Nice spot, Evelynn. Get some macro shots as well next time
Merhaba, Selen. This is a great shot.
Maybe a bit more saturation will make it more dramatic?
It's a very good first attempt, Ben.
As Geof and Alex said the DOF is rather shallow. You would need all the DOF you can get from your lens. If your lens comes with a leaflet and DOF table, check the difference between the DOF of f/4 and f/32. You might want to consider f/16 if the DOF is not that much different from f/32. At 1:1 the difference is probably less than 1 mm but it may make a whole lot of difference.
To get maximum detail it's better to use a diffused flash (from an angle, not hot shoe mounted) rather than direct sunlight.
Very nicely done. I like the blurred BG but the water ripples look kind of funny.
Nice sharp portrait.
Polypedates leucomystax, our common tree-frog.
This is probably a female looking at the size.
Males are much smaller.
Very sharp with nice clean BG. It would do well with a little bit more DOF (not much, maybe at f/8) to put the antennae in focus as well.
I agree with Grzegorz. This is a hoverfly/flowerfly of the fam. Syrphidae. You can see the 'halteres' or vestigial wings very clearly in this shot (the two white 'droplets' just behind the wings.
Nice catch, Ivan. Well focused!
He looks like someone diving into a pool :D
Very sharp and good DOF. Without additional lens? My A700 would not let me take macros at max focal length.
Nice catch, Annick! Real sharp and detailed.
