Here is a second test sample - Bee Head

Again, a very DEAD subject.

This time I learned that using the 10 second delay on the shutter produces a MUCH better result. I keep meaning to pick up a remote shutter release; but, this does work as well.

This is based on an earlier suggestion in this thread regarding lower shutter speeds. It was so low that pressing the shutter created OOF images. Please excuse the clumsy attempt to flatten the background to black. It was a quick & dirty excercise to see what could be done with this product by a complete novice!
