[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have been trying my new Raynox DCR-250 lens, getting to the limit my old Sony + Sony close up, and I was quite surprised with the results.

This is the original full photo at maximum magnify level, it has no crop, only colour adjust, USM, frame and resize. It is taken with flash + diffusser.

Hope you like!

Hi Felipe,
This is superb macro-shot. I know how hard is to make photo with Raynox, but you did it very well. I want to sell my Raynox ;)
Composition is great. Sharpness on the eye. Beautiful colours.

salut Felipe,
intéressante prise de vue, le gros plan fait son effet. J'aime bien le cadrage dans l'angle qui permet une lecture fluide, les couleurs et la lumière sont bons. Dommage que la dof soit un peu courte.

Bonjour Felipe,
I like as you say "your old Sony" :-) The Raynox lens seems to be a great add-on and the result is impressive. I appreciate the details on eye and trunk.
Congratulations my friend for this good camera work,

Hola Felipe y Cristina,
Más que una cámara parece una lupa binocular de gran calidad, el aumento es extraordinario y de gran definición, me imagino que tendrás que acercar la cámara bastante al insecto, Saludos
