    Why do people post macro pics to show off camera?
    A macro pic of a pennys or a flower seems like a bad example to show a camera quality. I prefer to see buildings, landscapes, cars, or even better people. I have always felt macro pics are a bit of a cop out. The objects tend to sit still and are easy to compose. the smaller object fool you because you see something your eyes can't normally see. Anyone else feel this way or am i alone?

    thats the only thing they can think to photograph. Hardly anyone takes pics of people, and even less with other tihngs because they take more control

    macros are often confused these days with close ups with small DOF
