Excellent capture, not that bad, cool shot.!!!
The details are great. Excellent work.
It takes abit getting used to the settup. The body becomes the bellows unit. Any slight movement by you is about a centimeter or more in focusing. Very short focus and DOF as you are finding out.
It's fun and challenging, that's why I was hooked on it, it was like a game. LOL
Push the DOF if you can, the bigger the number the better.

Hi Felipe, I love the experimentation and it's a pretty good result. It's certainly close, any closer and you'd be inside! Good and sharp too, just very narrow DOF. Keep it up, good work :)

This is an interesting experiment. Nice details were its sharp. This is like a drug. Once bitten your hooked. Hang in there and its tuff but rewarding. Very nice for a first try, really.

Εξαίρετη μακρο φωτογραφία Felipe.
Αν και με μικρό βάθος πεδίου η εστίαση είναι πολύ καλή. Οι λεπτομέρειες φανταστικές. (gr)

I think you did a great job, Felipe. Amazing details on that caterpillar. Much closer than I would normally care to be. : P
What interesting colors and patterns on the body. Keep up the good work, and TFS. : )

This is a good capture Felipe, it would come in handy for those hard to see details. The detail in the center is very sharp and clear, the falloff around the edges Id say has more to do with the optical limitations than shallow DOF. Its an impressive macro though, good work.

Superb result as a first time experiment Felipe. Details are very good, sharpness also. Aberration is always problem with low budget lenses. Insect looks really weird - I wonder what is this circe of spots on its head? Eyes? Great work and I hope to see more from this field!

Hi Felipe, this is a very good shot for the first try. Quality of the lens really matters in macro photograpy. The details in the middle are fantastic, so the colours. I bit less zoom might have some positive effect to The Dof.
Thanks a lot for mentioning my name in the note my friend :)
Very well done.
