    a leaf hopper from alexandra hospital butterfly trail. shot this ard 7pm. used auto focus to nail this fella as it was too dark to MF. i sometimes used AF if MF is unusable. hence, if getting a macro lens, dont discount the AF function. it is a very handy tool in dire situation like this.

    this is the only keeper from that trip. i only managed two shots before my model hopped away. AF save the day!

    i am retiring my plate diffuser as it doesnt work very well for small & crouching insects. the shadow is very harsh here. hope the new one give better results.

    Testing out the el-cheapo diffuser, it seems to work well for 1:1 mag or slightly less, ie close to the subject. Further away, I receive shadows. Only one flash FG 540 with the diffusers mounted on the hot - shoe for both images.



    Yup, some shadows as the spider was cropped as it was quite a distanace away. Seems to eliminate shadows within about 10 inches distacne.

    what is an el-cheapo diffuser? i am upgrading to a from a char bee hoon plate to a char siew pau paper bag now... totally agreed with you on the shadow-distance correlation. trying out twin diffuser with 2 char siew pau paper bag. the problem is how to divert the flash light into the two bags

    El-cheapo diffusers is the aluminium can in where I brought to Mandia orchind farm with some slight modification, to highlight the lower portion.

    1, more for the night.



    uncropped and unprocess. original file.. same diffusers that eliminates shadows at 1:1 magnification. Think tripoid used for this shot.

    testing out the 1224 lens this morning at the office with K20D body. got a problem here, the highlight in the cloud and shadow in foreground tree are difficult to render.

    C&C welcome.

    I still have a lot of empty aluminium cans to stand by, in case adjustment needed in the el-cheapo diffusers.

    Kam Fei, looks a little saturated, my opinion, and based on my untrained eyes. But what do I know. I am quite hopeless with PS.

    Hey, looks like a spot for the evening skies! I want to go your office!

    Here are some shots taken at Bako National Park near Kuching, Sarawak, East Malaysia last month with K10D + Sigma 17-70 f/2.8-4.5

    Fishing Traps on the Horizon



    Reflections



    Sunset at Bako


    I used a gradual filter that I bought from eBay and I find that there is a strong purple tint where the darkest area of the filter is, looked kinda nice in sunset shots like above, but for daytime shot, it's really unnatural looking like this...




    I thought gradual filter should be neutral in colour? Any expert can advise?

    These are beautiful shots, Marvin. The composition is just .

    The problem with these cheaper filters is you are never going to know what you are going to get. E.g. Tianya ones. Different batches different quality. I also get quite a bit of that, and I am not sure if it's really the Tianya filters or my lack of skills.

    I am thinking really hard if I should just dump some money to get this Filter set from David Noton. It's a lot of money!

    I let logic rule over me for a very long time for this lens.
    What would 0.3 stop do?



    Now I am a believer....
