All very beautiful images. Great little flowers. Would not have a clue what they are :>))

Great DOF and background.

Maybe a little curves adjustment to make them pop a bit and bring the lightness up a tad. A slight s curve should do it.

Other than that , excellent.

Gale, thanks for the comments and tips. I will apply a light curve adjustment later and see. I added descriptions for you and any one else interested in what they are. I only have 743 images to go thru and then i will have time to do this :^)
Gilles,
Yes these were taken with the 200mm micro and a 5T close up lens, on a focusing rail. I tried the 70-200 2.8 VR and Canon 500D and was unable to get this kind of detail and quality mainly due to difficulty in "finding" my working distance and getting that monstor on the right plane with the subjuct to maximize depth of field.

Very nice images Dave. How close did you have to get with the 200mm micro + 5T combo?

Frank,
Thanks for the comments as I am quite pleased with these images. No post processing yet tells me there are some good possibilities for these. I would estimate that about 8 inches was the working distance for this combo. I do have some nice images I will post later with the 500D on the 70-200.
