Thanks for your advice on extension tubes. Have been off the site for a couple of weeks and have found the information very useful. I have purchased some manual extension tubes to begin trying/attempting macro photography and have done some further research. My only worry is the dust factor really and the manual aperture setting, which may convince me to purchase some of the Kenko tubes which give you control over aperture.
hi john thanks for the comment. that bubble shot you asked about was done in a program called photobrush 5 if you like these kind of shots i can highly recommend it.its very cheap to buy and the little planet part is worth it alone for the effect. i think you can download a trial version. also its soooooooooooo easy to use no need to take alot of shots ,stitching them etc. hope this was helpful. paul
John, I had Sony a380 with kit lenses and a 50mm 1.8 and I gave them to my brother to get myself a canon. 7d is one of the most dslrs I am interested in. can you help me please with your experience. I see that you almost had the same sony to canon move. did you notice improvement in image quality?
Some people claim that 7d has annoying noise at at low (ISO 100 to 800)?
And what lenses you got? I felt in my Sony experience that I was wrong that I got the kit lenses so I decided to not to get kit lenses when I go Canon or Nikon. I am thinking of Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8.

Dark? Not really, more of a somber mood, enhanced by that desaturation.
The photo really lives from the textures (I like that background, looks like birch bark or vellum),"
