@FATAL3RROR : I visited your flickr album now...I liked the odd, Surprised and your wallpaper...You've got a nice little setup for still life photography ..did you make it yourself?..I wish the patience to make one like that..

Do visit my photostream at Flickr: Navins' Photostream
Thanks Navin! But I see I have a lot to learn from you!

Yes I made that setup myself. I had been planning to do this for over an year. Finally, decided to go ahead.
In typical Master Card style:

Raw Material for the Setup: 40 Rupees
Time to taken to DIY: 2 hours
The final outcome: Priceless.

It's really worth the effort. Check out this page for more information:

Was feeling bored at home and since i don't get too many chances to use my Nikon D40x, i thought of taking some random shots at home. Here is the results.

Look forward to critical comments :-

Very nice! I've tried this but havent got the kind of photos that you've got. Did you use a reversing ring or hand hold the lens ? Would love to know your technique.

Above shots are clicked with help of reversal ring.

However I have started off with hand held revers technique. Here are few shots(1st and 2nd) that I have clicked with hand held.

Now coming to reversal ring that I used. I have created this one at home on my own. For this you need to scarifice your body cap. I have cut the body cap at the center and pasted a 58mm uv filter to so that I can screw in the lens to it. Following are the images(4th 5th and 6th) of the reversal ring that I have created

Very ingenious way of building the reversing ring! Will try your method. Even without the reversing rings, the pics you've shot are fantastic.
