Well Gerhard if this is one of your 1st with this set up all I can say is we are in for a real treat when you settle in with it. This one is not as bad as you make out.It is only the tips of the feet and the antenae which are soft in focus, you could harden them up using burn tool to darken them.
The over exposed one , I have found that when working in macro I have to use single spot to metre the subject for 2 reasons 1/ as you found it is easy to over expose the subject especially the ones with shinney shells, 2/ I find that for some reason that it helps the camera decide where to focus. The person to speak to would be Bente who uses one, and I seem to rember you can select the number of places the camera looks for a place to focus right down to a single point also.
keep them comming like this one it realy is good.
Very nice work Gerhard, you sure are racking up that equipment, and good for you it's going oo good use already. Excellent picture and good note. Thanks for sharing.

The detail is superb on this image, Gerhard! It looks like I can reach out and touch what looks to be a rough texture shell. Wonderful work... can't wait to see what else you will do with this camera. Best to you and your new shooter...being a Canon girl myself I am quite partial to their DSLRs.

This shot is so good I can smell the thing. it really stinks, not the picture, the fact that I can't get such good shots.

Gerhard, Very good work here. I look forward to the all your future posts in the land of the small..Great job!
Nice picture taken in not easy conditions but you manage very well.
Your note is very interesting. I am a Canon owner too (PowerShot S1-IS). It is not a big one like yours but sufficient for a beginner like me. I begin to tame it. TFS Gerhard

A good note too.

Great set of extention tubes you got there Gerhard - this capture is really good and shows a lot of details. Colours and composition are great and you really got the right dof here, which is hard to get with these tubes as well as the front lenses I use (same problem dof within 2-5 mm).

Very good Gerhard.
Your ext.tubes works very fine.
I used to use a 36 mm ring and set the zoom to about 200 mm.
Well done my friend.

How i see the situation, the camera is in right arms. The best shots is in the future (near). Because the one of first is avesome. Congratulations. I have no possibility yet to get one. But i have the plans to enlarge the possibility of my camera with Wide Conversion Lens, Macro Extension Lens, Telephoto Conversion Lens. I hope that will increase the value of taken photos. Sorry for that long comment.
