Re: Testing out macro on my new camera.... -

I'll throw in my two cents. I'm not a professional photographer or anything, but I'll make some comments.
For the first picture, it looks good, but I think you should try to get more of the leaf that's in the center into the picture and also crop the picture a bit so the blue in the top-right corner isn't there and the center of focus is more on the buds. I think the angle is nice and your camera did a pretty good gob, but it might be nice for the leaf in the bottom left to be less blurry.
For the second, I think it's pretty sweet. Only suggestion would be to try to get the whole top of the baseball in the picture so you get the full crescent of the laces, which looks pretty sweet
My suggestions for the third and fourth are pretty much the same. I know the focus was supposed to be on the number of the bike (or that's how it ended up, anyways ), and I think even though that's the case, you should try to get the whole bike in. For the fourth, the shells and glass are really pretty so you should see if you can get more of those in.
Guh I totally didn't mean to sound so negative. I was trying to give constructive criticism. :P I really do think the pictures are nice. I especially like the one of the baseball, and I don't even like baseball.

I'll see you on the other side.
