|Hello Fellow TL friends,|
Trying to get the ant on the over with a 100mm Macro, find this pic very interesting for no Photoshop at all.

With your 100mm macro you should really get much closer to capture a more impressive macro image. Just my personal opinion.
You have an excellent camera and a fine macro lens. But the settings, in my opinion as an amateur, are wrong. You used an aperture of f/2.8 which will give you a very shallow depth of field, I think you could have used an aperture of f/22? The resulting shutter speed is 1/8000 sec, to avoid camera shake you could have used a much slower speed; but faster than the focal length of 100mm. The ISO is quite high, but I think your camera can cope with that, but you need to keep that as low as you can to avoid grain.
The photo itself; the ant is very small in the picture so lacks any impact. I'm sorry to be so negative, but keep trying as practice makes perfect.
