    Nice flower and background blur, Bernice.

    Reminds me of this LF shot's background, pulled from the “Leaf” thread, to compare with SLR lenses and smaller formats when it comes to macro compositions. Like yours, it's approaching 1:1.

    Tachi 4x5
    Schneider 150mm/9 G-Claron
    Fuji Velvia-50
    Epson 4990/Epson Scan

    Call it a leaf who got held up on its journey to the forest floor.

    I hope you can see the spider thread suspending the leaf?

    I used a Schneider 150mm/9 g-claron with considerable bellows draw for a Tachi macro application. Despite the magnification, I still slightly cropped this shot since the leaf stayed small in relationship to the film. I think the aperture was fairly open (f/11) for the 1/30th (!) shutter speed. (Who keeps saying to stop this lens way down?) And I was very lucky with DOF. If I had closed down and used flash, I'm sure the soft background would have gone black, rendering a different aesthetic appeal.

    I remember waiting for the wind to still. And waiting… And waiting…

    Daniel, I was very sorry to hear your children had been depressed. It would be best to PM me if you need to share more details. Meantime, we look forward to seeing more of your great images.

    Re: Post your critters & plants under the macro lens

    LF macro out of focus blur is different than what is achieved in smaller formats. The out of focus image quality remains affected by the aperture shape even at f16-f22 which is why older barrel lenses with mostly round iris remains preferred.

    Have this same image made using 13x18cm Agfa Chrome RS100. The colors are different. At some point, should dig it out, scan it to post for to allow a comparison. Thinking of this, should do some more digging of old images to share..

    These web images do not come close to presenting the amount of detail contained at the plane of focus.. What does come up with images like this, how much of the image to hold in sort of focus -vs- out of focus blur and it's rendition.

    Nice! I don't think I would have seen the thread without the hint.

    I find spiders strange and fascinating, though I've not yet succeeded in making my wife a fan. Pretty soon it will be warm enough for them to start working again outside in my garden. Leucauges venusta http://www.marylandinsects.com/image...d_Spider_1.jpg is an especially attractive, if small, orb-builder. They have a very sporty chartreuse/black/white/silver coloration, and have the odd habit of often setting their webs at a 45 deg angle to the vertical. There seem to be dozens in late spring, and then one day they're all gone.
    Where are we going?
    And why are we in this handbasket?

    Your orchard spider is a beautiful insect, whoops, I mean arachnid.

    Nicely balanced in the frame, too.

    So attractive, if it allowed me, I'd be tempted to hold it in my palm for a close look, without a flinch!
