hmm let listen to more opinions...

1-st one no flash
2-nd one use 420EX flash

500D cost me $150.. now dunno how much.

How far away are you from the object? What's a fill flash?

My dragon fly macro is not that sharp, I am abt 1m away from it with max 10x zoom. Maybe is my shaky hands..

f/3.5
1/25sec

I prefer not to touched up my photo... unless the pic turns very lousy.

Anyway how you do the touched up?

Usually i just use auto-level, contrast or sharpen.

That's all.. :D

use the magic wand to select the insect and then do a curve adjust (Image > Adjust > Curve) to brighten it ...

one question here. Sometimes i feel that it is no point getting so near cos the insects will run away.. I prefer to shoot at a distance and have zoom. What do you all think?
