    E-510, EX-25 Extension Tube, 40-150 at about 48mm. I tried a bunch of exposure of the yellow columbine to combine them in Helicon Focus, but it was too windy. Might try again today. I have a neighbor with a great garden.

    Those hummingbird shots are pretty cool!

    I need to do some work on the last one - that is pretty much straight out of the camera except for the crop.

    Thanks! We have them so thick in our back yard that they drain an entire 20 ounce feeder in a day or so! Their incredibly brave too...occasionally they will let you touch them while their feeding if your semi-sneaky about it.

    I need to get a set of extension tubes...i really miss doing Macro!

    I like the 3rd one even though its out of focus...the 4th could use a little bit of a saturation boost and some sharpening.

    Yeah, the 4th definitely needs work. The third, the center of an iris, I liked when I saw it in camera. Kind of interpretive or something I guess.

    I've been back out shooting all last week. Need to take this week off as my physical therapist thinks the weight of the camera may be a bit too much just yet.

    nice setup... how much something like that cost a guy? I am guessing multiple thousands of dollars?

    The guys with those cameras were pretty cool. They were up visiting from England. The set-up closest in the shot with camera body cost over $30,000. The funny thing was each guy had at least 4 different bodies, and around a dozen other lenses. I asked if they shoot for anything particular, and they just said it was a VERY expensive hobby.

    Working for the forest service on Mt. Evans allows me to see many different cameras from all around the world, but those were some of the nicest I have seen. I just had to get a pic of their equiptment. I saw those guys again today, but we had the mountain shut down due to snow, so I had to point them else where.

    Processing them? You still use film and a dark room?

    I was also processing some multiple exposure images in Helicon Focus. See the Macro thread for the results.
