Got to make some macros over the long 4th of July weekend. I love the looks of sharp subjects superimposed on colorful OOF background... or in other words I crave bokehs :biggrin:

Your comments and criticism are very welcome.

African Violet No. 1. Used Nikkor 55-200VR with a Kenko Extension Tube. I like the effect of this combination. It lets me work in "semi" macro mode and yet allows me to use slower shutter speeds.

Robert,

Thanks for your comments. While experimenting, I found that adding the tubes to any lens opens a completely new avenue for exploration. Live and learn, I guess.
