A set that highlights macro shots, made with either my kenko extension tube set (modular 12, 20 and 36mm tubes) and short focal range lenses/lens settings, or simply shot at high optical magnification and cropped to the desired "macro" view.
A macro shot at 135mm, with 68mm of extension behind it, at about 30cm subject distance (mmm, micro print). The only thing that was done to this image was down scaling with edge preservation from 3900px width to 1000px.
The floor of a fungus, almost something like out a tropical rain forest but then at a micro scale... shot at 50mm with 68mm extension, f/16 at iso 800 with flash.
A seed pod of a fungus, as found on Sybren and Marit's balcony. Macro photography brings out a complete new world... shot at 50mm with 68mm extension, f/16 at iso 800 with flash
The same fantastic little herb, shot at 50mm with 68mm extension, f/11 at iso 800 with flash.
A fantastic little herb that's supposedly edible of which the name is left in the middle... shot at 50mm with 68mm extension, f/11 at iso 800 with flash.
A twig with fungal growth on its tips, which are 3~5 millimeter wide. Shot at 50mm with 68mm extension, f/5.6 at iso 800 with flash
This is what you get if you shoot a laptop screen at an acute angle with flash, at 135mm with 68mm extension, f/16 (iso 800). I think it actually looks quite pretty...
Parsley up close has white leaf tips. And spiders, apparently (I only discovered that when it came time to resize the image!). 50mm with 68mm extension, f/11 (iso 800)
A young poppy plant's seed. 50mm with 68mm extension, f/16 (iso 800)
Stofje, Sybren and Marit's cute little rat. Shot at 200mm with 68mm extension, f/16 (iso 800)
Some amethyst shot at 4cm using my 28-300 lens at 86mm with 68mm of extension, f/14 at iso 320. White balance was rather required here, due to the way the light runs around in this crystal.
The husk of a chestnus and the low sun do marvelous things with shadows.
I'm not the biggest fan of gerania, but I do like macro shots of flowers =)
I have no idea what kind of mushroom this is, I found it growing in my parents' garden.
mmmm opium... I loved the drop of water on this poppy pod.
A semi-macro shot of a red leaf just after the rain's stopped. I'd have to ask my mum what this plant actually is, but I know I love the colour of this shot.
I have no idea what this flower is, I would imagine some kind of lily but I just have not enough botanical knowledge, nor a flora.
Nice, bright, tigerlilies. No question.
