Failure is success, if we learn from it.

The fly stands out well, as the only focused part of the image.

Re: HX1 My 1st Macro Fly

Great shot. OT, but I wonder why Sony didn't use a Carl Zeiss lens on this camera??

Flat out good ..

Composition, technique and detail all work here. Very, very well done. Glad you're getting the goods with that camera.

Hey, I looked at this before where is my comment?

Someone stole my comment on this very excellent macro. The Hx1 is really shining here. As is the person behind the EVF.

Re: HX1 My 1st Macro Fly

Great fly photo - love the detail and had me scurrying out into the garden to see what I could find.

I found this Hover fly (this was the only shot I could get of it and I didn't manage to get the sharpness of your fly). I have the camera set to the lowest level of NR in camera and then run all my photos through Noiseware. Also added a touch of shadow detail in Photofiltre.

The original file size was 8.96MB but the hover fly didn't take up much real estate in that hence this small crop !

1/200. Normal Exp. -0.7EV. F4. ISO125. Focal 16.5mm.
