/Helophilus pendulus/
I about bzygu wrote already once.
I tried ring posredni KENKO EXTENSION TUBE today. I screwed in this the widest 36mm. I did not wind up annular lamp. Pretty sunny day was. A bit wind floated. However calm moments happened. Insect bored a bit. Flower, then medical traveller. Grass' stalk disturbed a bit, but I could not anything make. I ran around after this meadow and used with every opportunity, when insect crouched on moment.

Friends, you have for me some advice what to these rings?

Hello Roma,
a nice colour composition. The scene is well presented with the focus just right. Beautiful light. The sharpness could be a bit better.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Roma,
What a nice colored composition with good détails, I like it, well done

Fotka piękna i nareszcie pokazujesz swoje mistrzowskie możliwośći.
A gdzie ja byłem jak Ty sie uganiałaś za tym bzykiem?

Hello Roma,
Super details in this shot,I like the colours and the contrasr yelow-blue.



I am back.

Amazing, quels détails, superbe macro.

la profondeur de champ est un peu juste mais la netteté est bonne sur la tête et les etamines de la fleur.bonne couleurs.

hello roma
perfect macro, the clearness is good, the composition is well done

I just got my extension tube so I'm just experimenting. I'm trying to get as much aperture as possible so I'm using a higher ISO which causes noise. It think this is an excellent image. Nice and sharp on the stamen and the bee. Well done.

Bardzo ladnie ujelas tego bzyga. Usiadl na pieknym kwiatku. Wspaniale siê prezentuje. piekne kolory, detale.


Dear Roma,
this is an excellent picture of this Syrphid fly that we don't see often. The composition is interesting and there is good sharpness at the head.
About the extension tubes: They are extending the focal range of your objective. The optical qualities of the objective don't change with the use of tubes; of course you loose light because the greater distance of the objective from the light sensing plane. But supplementary lenses would also absorb some light. I use tubes together with a macro zoom 100 objective. I assume that the objective has been optimized for picture quality at a middle range (say, 70). With the tubes I can always work in this middle range of the zoom. (I have no proof that the pictures are better now, only a feeling).

My bestregards to you,
