    shots with a DIY macro lens



    Some strange reflections as well.



    The focal point is a little too small though.

    And also appears to be contaminated with something

    Looks good. Did you use a Lupe?

    thanks, I put 2 large binocular lenses together and mounted them in a filter holder.

    Perfect, that's the kind of shot I want. I was going to do that but I need to find one that I can order from the web (local store said 'sorry, we don't carry those').
    What lens are you reversing?

    B&H Photo is here: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/
    this is the ring I picked up: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...sing_Ring.html
    I also got this for stacking: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...pler_Male.html

    now that I think about it a bit, that image I posted may have been the 35-80mm stacked on the front of the 18-55mm. I was fooling with so many different combos when the box showed, I forget what did what.
    shot with Nikon D80.
