  2. Very nice. Tough shot of the bee!! :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D 
  3. Great shots Andreas

    Thats a fun lens - I have it also. You should see what happens when you put 36mm of extension tubes on it!

    I like the first one original immensely.

  5. So does that mean stacking extension tubes?

    Tanks for the compliments!

    I'm sorry to say I have never tried extension tubes, what should I buy?


  6. Re: So does that mean stacking extension tubes?

    I recommend getting the set of 3 Kenko tubes - they are cheap and a lot of fun. You can go beyond 1:1 with them using the 105mm and they are also good to use with the 50mm and some other lenses supposedly.

    You can use em individually or stack em for even greater magnification.

  7. Re: Here are a couple more

    Maybe I can help clear up the mystery, Andreas.

    1. Convert your images to sRGB before you upload them to pBase. Their software doesn't understand
    AdobeRGB, and if you use it, will deal a fatal blow to your image's quality.

    2. Only link the "original" size. That way, pBase will make no alteration to your pictures. If you use large
    medium, or small, pBase will use their funky (and destructive) method of downsizing.

    Note: if your picture is greater than 800 pixels on its longest side, pBase will automatically downsize for a
    direct link .... unless you include the term "original" in the link.

    Hope that helps.
  8. finally!

    Someone who cam help wit this! I appreciate it!
