I'm a bit nervous posting here with all of you wonderful photographers. But I'll never learn if I don't share. :smile:

Here are a few shots I took with the Tamron 28-75 f/2.8. It isn't true macro, but it's the closest I have. I had a hard time metering and ended up with a lot of blown highlights. How can I avoid this in the future but still get the correct subject exposure? I am open to all comments and critique! This is my first attempt at macro.

These were all taken at 75mm with spot metering and sunny white balance.

f/2.8
1/3200
ISO 100
(probably should have stopped down for more DOF)

Beautiful images
Only comment would be to back the contrast off the red one to bring back details
All your images are beautiful
