Your macro flowers are the very best I have seen on this site...I have never used an extension tube, and have recently been seeing mention of them alot! This is the look I would like to achieve myself. Maybe you can help me with some suggestions about what lens etc I would need to get etc...

Wow! Your pictures always keep getting better... if that's even possible. I really like the colors in this shot and the lighting is perfect too. But I wish that there were more details in the pixel things? It kind of seems too soft to me.

WOW!!!! What an awesome image, Steven! Superb macro, and very effective use of extension tubes. Your DOF is perfect. I've been playing with extension tubes myself, so can appreciate how difficult it is to achieve such a great result!
