The day after I got my macro kit I stacked the 4+ and the 10+ on my LB2.0 and headed out to see if I could get stung by shoving my camera into some flowering bushes. No stings, but a few neat pictures.

Does chromatic aberration increase using the macros?

#1 is spot on, nice composition. Patience is key when shooting critters. You find yourself say "ok buddy just turn a little this way...."

Hi Keln,

Yes, chromatic aberration increases slightly using the macro lenses with the double glass (2.0/3g) optic. Should not affect the single (Original) or plastic optics as they start with significant chromatic aberration.

Thanks for your responses. As a premed student who just stumbled upon photography this past spring I really love having a forum to get some feedback on the pictures I've been taking. There is something fantastic about a community that brings together pros and a newbie like me. There is so much to learn from you folks.

David, I really enjoyed your macro shots of the dandelion fluff and the water droplet on grass.

William, looking at your shot of the white chair I felt an urge to start playing with still-lifes. I don't have any photo lighting equipment, any suggestions?

Craig, your lens has opened a whole new world to me. The best study break is always stepping away from my text books and exploring the details around me.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my images.

Nice macro images. Glad you didn't get stung.
