between the railings on the veranda. Still trying to get the hang of macro photography.

    Thanks, the DoF is still too narrow, but the background blur is beautifully silky :)

    Spider with a long tail? Nice shot, David.
  • David de Groot said:
    I think it (the tail) was an egg sac (or will be one). I'm not entirely sure though.

    It appears unsharp? Where is your depth of field (even at f9). I it looks like the eyes are in field, but the top of the lower body is not? Did you crop the photo (how much)? or where is the full size? Wind?
  • David de Groot said:
    No crop, this is the full frame. However, it was a little breezy and although I was using a tripod, focussing at 1:1 is still tricky (still a novice to this). I'd love a focussing rail for when I'm using the tripod, but that will have to wait.

    Just had a puddle outside in the sunlight (when it was about), hand-held. Tricky stuff this, still not happy with the results.
