Used my 16-85 mm nikon lens and a manual macro extension tube, costing ca. 10 Dollars.
Had to manually set the aperture with a peace of paper on the back on the lens. :)

Madman
Great blurring of background with red highlight.
Depth of field is very narrow and as I look at it
I am only seeing the upper right portion of near object in focus.
Really good macro shot but I think I would have
tried to get more of the foreground strainer in focus
and leave the background blurred (if possible).

You are so right Dale. But i have to find a way to set the aperture more easy. Now i have to remove the lens every time to set it.
And Mandrake, why do you do it like that all the time? I only have to manually set it when shooting macro.. Wink

I was joking, madman, as I hoped you would realize by the wink.
Perhaps you are too.
