Apple Juice Anybody?
Hi Helmut - "Handheld macro 105mm", impressive result and a good note to go along with the image.
The lesson for me here is on the DOF - f11. Whenever I try and do macros I have a mental block and go for shallow DOF/faster shutterspeed - that's a bad habit I need to get out of, I think.
The wee ball of apple here is the icing on the cake for me...and the diagonal composition is very cool.

Very striking colors you got here, Helmut. Very good POV and DOF. Some pixelation in some areas, especially apparent on its back. The overexposure is effective here.

Awesome macro work with rich colour and crisp detail. Well done.
What a shot, Helmut! Incredibly vivid capture. I think I'm going to need to get a macro lens... do you like the 105mm? I too am shooting primarily a D300 (also have a D70s that does nice work). Excellent notes, too. TFS, Sir. -Kelly

Good morning Helmut
A really amazing macro here and a very brave one I might add, wasps are not a creature I relish getting close too lol.
Superb sharp detail and a really superb close POV here
TFS regards Helen

Perfect work. Very very nice macro. Good job. Well done. Thanks for sharring.
Superb colour and detail Helmut, I don't use a tripod when I am chasing insects. Nicely composed and the front on shot works well. The question must be asked, do ou live in Bracknell and if so where exactly is it?,
