    First, you should read the guides in the macro section:

    Macros and Close-ups

    Next, consider joining a macro outing. For example:

    But without some basic skill and talent, you cannot get a "great pic" by relying on gear alone. You need to learn how to use your gear first. Then use your gear to express your creativity. Just buying a 60D and raynox 250 will not give you great pics. It requires patience, practice, luck and more practice.

    Looking for a magic formula? There is none. Define "great pic" for yourself, first.
    There are composition guidelines, exposure guidelines and others - but all these will always finally tell you "It depends .." - on your intention, your situation (light, object), your equipment, your skills ...

    ditto ditto ditto

    get the basics right, do the youtubes and read the tutorials .... then get out there make some like-mided friends to shoot with and shoot and review

    there is only that much u can learn from tutorials and videos ..... have to go out and shoot

    Its through fanatical doggedness and hard work that make these 'great pics' look deceivingly simple and wonderful

    Nobody know how you could get a great pic. You would need to try out yourself, post a photo here then we know how you could improve on.
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    Nice shot . What was your shutter speed and f-stop? Did you have to use a tripod?

    There's an entire section for Macro and Closeups where you can post your pictures and review other people's result.
    My personal opinion: DOF too thin, a larger part should be in focus.
