Veins of Life

I have to blame no maybe thank Jim Larkin for this image......
My 60mm and 105mm macro's have been sitting around not seeing much use.
With Jim picking up a 60mm last week I thought I would also attempt to use mine.
I can see why I don't bother with it much...I suck at it....Mind you it was a nice calm rainy morning which lead me to this image. Thanks again Jim for at least making me think about using this piece of glass again...but I don't think you will see much of a macro gallery from me......

Nikon D200
1/200s f/5.0 at 60.0mm iso800 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

You don't suck at it, you just don't use it. I've been lookinig at your work for long enough to know that if you start using it you will turn out great images. You're to hard on yourself with this one. I like it. The leaf is sharp, the drops are sharp. Keep using it. Maybe we should make Saturday "Macro Day" for me and you, just to force us to strat using them more.

I think you did a fine job as well Mike. The details remind me of an aerial road map.

I think you did well! The detail is very good! I like the little bit of water there too!
