    Default Water Droplets

    Hi, I recently acquired a used E500 and am stll figuring out how to use it. Here is one of my first attempts at a closeup image using a +4 diopter with the 40-150mm lens.

    It was taken a few weeks ago after a rain shower, and the wind was quickly evaporating the droplets.

    Comments and suggestions appreciated.

    Really a nice shot, but I doubt that you will get much better with the close up filter - Maybe stop down the lens a bit. I don't know what the f stop was, but go down f8-11 and it could bring some new life into the picture.

    This is already stopped down to f16 which gives plenty of dof but a slow (1/40sec) shutter. I think you have done well on this image.
