    is that a 100% crop or did you scale that?

    i'm not sure what 100% crop is.. i took the fullsize huge image.. cropped it to just the body.. then resized it to the current resolution

    okay, 100% crop is where you would zoom to 100% size then crop a selection to save, as opposed to scaling where you would reduce the whole image to suitable size. The reason I asked was this affects the perception of magnification & it seems like you are getting pretty good results with the extention tubes! Good work!
