starfish in macro valley


starfish in macro valley

changed my picture due to... blurriness of other shots.  hope you enjoy this one too.  its one of my four starfish, missing a leg (i cut it off) because it really they are food for my harlies


    forgot to add. PLEASE COMMENT OR CRITICIZE. just wanna learn and get better at this photography stuff. :) thanks i know things are out of focus as some parts... i'll maybe resubmit a better shot...
    It looks pretty cool. May be it is a bit out of focus. I am not a pro though ... but seeing every single chaeto line will not be too pretty either.
    thanks. i am still getting used to macros. will try and get some where the focus is actually in the CENTER of the shot. ;)
    how the light is reflecting it looks like the elos logo
    You asked for a critique :-D. Overall very interesting. Although maybe you could make the chaeto that is actually visible to pop out more somehow. If you can do it in a manual setting I suggest you lower the F-stop a lot more and give it a go. What camera you using?
    EOS 1-D umm, the oldenst model... just using a 28mm-70mm macro lense. i also incorporate a 10x jewelers loupe in the pictures. allows me to take photos from just 3/4" away from the object. i find it hard to get a clear shot though, because i have to hold a 1lb camera in one hand, and a tiny loupe in the other hand ON the lense of the camera... its not as easy as it sounds. thanks for the critque, and i will try that.
    changed photo to a more detailed one

    It just looks like a blurry photo to me. I would try to increase the depth of field and try to get a focused detailed picture. I think you could make it a much stronger image than just a bunch of green.
    k, i guess i could try... the loupe is tiny. maybe a macro of mixed macro algaes? i could mix in a red one for contrast :)
    You have a Canon 1D? Holy ####! Go treat yourself to a macro lens and you will wonder for a while why you stuck with a loupe :-D.
