Hi mate OwlMan:>
Nice to see you here again actively.
As usual a prodigious work in all technical aspects.
Amazing details on compound eyes.
Great shot Joey!
Hey Joe and nice to see you back
At first, i thought you bought this impressive lens...i would have been soooo jealous!!!! :))
This is an impressive macro shot and with a pretty interesting and new technique - this focus stacking. We have a new member here - Alistair Campbell - who's really good at that and actually has a MP-E...boy he's good!
Anyway, i really like what you pulled out here...the details are fantastic, the resulted DOF immense for this magnification and the light excellent.
Wonderful work, mate!
Bravo and TFS

This is an amazing close shot with great focus! I am astonished by the details and colors.
I'm thinking of buying a Speedlite for macros as well....

The close details you have captured of this head shot is great. Great macro photography with clear and well displayed details. The size of the eye and the clarity of the fine body hairs is super. Congratulations and thanks for sharing.

Great to see you posting again, my young friend :-) This is one of best supermacros of dragnfly head I've ever seen. I started to wonder how you achieved so great result with MP-E than read your note. Technique with stacking photos works superb! Which software did you use? I do something similiar with astronomy photos but not for better DOF but for more light from poor light sources like distant stars. Anyway - superb work!

Hi Joe .That was some lens set up you had on with the ring flash. You have done some fine work in Adobe Photoshop CS3 which some member may not like to much but you have not tried to hide it . For me i think its a fantstic macro how ever it was taken . the focusing and detail is second to none. With rich colours .Good work Joe. TFS.

A perfect example of image stacking,something I have yet to experiment with.
The even lighting you've got with that Speedlite is pretty awesome and the detail is superb.
Amazing work Joe!
Cheers & TFS

A top class close macro, professionally executed with the photo stack technique to achieve this superb DOF coupled with excellent sharpness throughout. Your use of fill-in flash is superb.
The thumb-nail first made me think that this was an ordinary close macro, but i was wrong: this is an extraordinary and professional presentation of the head of Libellula depressa and I thank you for that!
Photography of what is left of our natural world is obviously your future!

Stupendous clse-up macro of a dragonfly's eye, Joe.
The technique you have used here is something I have read about, but the result that I see is beyond my expectations.
You have reached a very high level of competence in photography and it is a delight to see your work.
Thanks and keep posting despite the pressure of your exams :).
