hi polytropos , what a nice technic! Brilliant shot ! I have thousands of things to learn from good photographers as you are! I think I have same kind of camera as you, but I have problems to manage with "macro" !!! :-( Annick

Thanks Annick. Yes, macros are a special chaptre in photography. Normally you need to use a tripod [because of the high danger of blurring], which I didn't have here :) and you need to have the opportunity of enlarging the depth of field by closing the lense [which I couldn't do here enough :) ]. And you need to decide which part of the picture you want to have sharp, which is sometimes very difficult with cameras with autofocus function, because the camera mostly use to decide differently! :) So I still like my 25 years old camera, where I can set all this features manually.

Hi polytropos! That's the point with autofocus ! Gosh, I attempted to shoot a frozen branch on a dark background in manual mode !!! But stupid CanonPowershot decided to focus.. background! this is the best I was able to do ! :-( Desappointed!

I can feel with you, Annick, but sorry, no idea how to dupe your CanonPowershot ;)
