Looks 'wicked' in the awesome sense.

Any shots of the detailed engine bay area please.

Love the detailing.

TG, even macros need composition, I don't see that in your images. I don't shoot macros much since I find composition very challenging. There is this member called Image in PAAI who is a guru in macro composition.

Here are couple of old shots from me, they are just OK I think:

Torqueguru,

I like your macros. They are very unconventional and interesting - almost like they tell a story.

Hellcat - super lighting, did you set up a lightbox? (Im not sure if that image should be in this thread, the auto-image thread or the Scale model thread )

guyonblack - that second picture is a beauty!!

May be it is in a langauge I don't understand.

With a small sensored P&S camera with macro mode, it is quite easy to get very sharp and astoundingly deep DOF shots. So there is a tendency to get impressed by the technicals. Problem with macros is exact this, most people miss the forest for the trees. But you have to start looking beyond just the technical merits. I stopped shooting macros after some real macro experts started pointing out lack of compostion in my shots. I find the macro composition most challenging and too time consuming. I've heard there is no other way. There have been days when I have shot 100 and then deleted all the 100 shots. This is besides the fact that I have one of the sharpest macro lenses (Zuiko 50mm F/2) ever made. So, I am just keeping off macros for now.

Edit: Checkout the bugs and flora shots from fellow member Deepak Rao : index
