      Thank you so much! I was quite pleased with this. had the image sitting around for about a year not knowing what to do with it until my friend mentioned the coffee creamer trick lol

      what kind of Macro lens did you get?
      keep in mind a few things with Macro, the closer you are, and the more detail you want, you'll need a small aperture/f/stop.
      the blur is most likely due to either a wide aperture, or possibly being too close. KEEP AT IT though! once you get the hang of it, the rewards are amazing!

      I have to experiment a lot I guess .. have to keep in mind to use the lowest aperture I guess

      experiment with the different apertures, but also keep in mind you have a minimum focusing distance of of 7.87 inches with that particular lens, you can't get any closer unless you use extension tubes or close up filters. do you have any images up that you've shot with it? I'm quite interested in seeing what's going on with them. I might be able to help you better.

      i'm not kidding when I say this, it took me a freaking YEAR to get the hang of doing macro with extension tubes, I shot probably close to 10k images of utter crap! lol

      I am so not up to speed with lenses, I haven't bought a new one since I bought the lensbabie 3g years ago, and to this day it's still my most expensive lens...one day I'll get a fisheye lens and maybe eventually get a real macro, but 400 bucks for one...ugh lol
