Hi

I think it doesnt work that much because
- First one: the black hole is out of the focus spot but is too much attractive. it's confusing.
- Second one: The subject is too small.

Anyway, very nice colors and sorry for my 2 cents comments... :)

Thk for the comment.

It is very hard to shot marco. I try many thing but still cant focus what i want. The first pic is the best so far.
As for the 2nd pic, we can zoom in more to take pic on the tiny creature?

First pic:wrong focus point,cropped too much.
Second:looks good,as it shows more than one of those tiny fellows,maybe a larger sweet spot would have been even better!

I like both images.

1st shot i would try either moving back to get the whole flower in, or moving in closer so you do not get any background. Also i usualy add a bit of saturation and Vibrance in Photoshop (but i shoot RAW).

If your camera has live-view that can help although i do not often use it, but for macro it can be handy.

Keep trying!

Well,in pic 1,maybe you should have focused in the middle of the flower,and also taken one or two steps back.

I like the first shot too. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

When I shoot (non-flash) macro I use a tripod and cable release more often than not otherwise the shot composition falls apart. I don't have that steady of a hand anymore (injury to neck). Live View is essential and also affords me the opportunity to zoom in on my image for precise focus control. Give it a try and see if you do not notice good results.

Practice makes for perfect blur;-)

I like the first one very inviting colors, the focus could be a bit deeper but non the less its a great image.
