    I like the colors in 3 and 4 the best, but I wish you shot these with a bigger DOF. It's oof at his nose and where he hits the water.

    Also, there are some pretty good blown highlights. I guess you were shooting outside? Those things are slimy, which makes them reaaaally reflective...

    If he's a pet, try shooting in the shade or in the sun but with a big white sheet or umbrella softening the light.

    I love my macro! It's fun, isn't it!!

    Yep, he lives in a pond in my front yard.. and it was during the brightest part of the day, not ideal, i know. I guess I could grab his ass and throw him in a shoe box so I could get some more ideal lighting in my house.. little fucker.. haha.

    First time using an actual macro lens, so it's a learning experience.. pretty fun though!

    They make macro lenses with f/2.8 but you almost always needs more DOF than that.

    I like the colors on 3 and 4, but I like the tighter shot in 4, but better DOF in 3.
