Thanks guys - and to answer the person that asked if it's the 055...it is :)

That was me...thanks!! Do all 055s do that (the horizontal center section) or only certain models?

That's pretty darn cool man!

How are you mounting the Nikon 55mm f/2.8 AI-S Macro to your 5D?

There are cheap sub-10USD adapters out there to mount manual lenses from other brands (Nikon/Olympus/Pentax M42/Leica etc etc) to Canon EOS mount :) The most important is that the lens has an aperture ring.

You mean Leica R I'm guessing. Actually the most important thing would be that the flange back distance is greater than that of the EF mount unless you don't mind losing infinity focus and possibly only be able to focus to a couple feet or less. An aperture ring isn't a requirement, just a mechanical aperture mechanism so even the newer Nikon G lenses that lack an aperture ring can be just as usable. This is because there are adapters, although not as cheap, that interface with the aperture linkage on the rear of the lens allowing you to open and close the aperture. I also think Pentax's newer lenses are the same as this, I don't think they've moved to electronic aperture control for the K mount.

OK, I'm pretty frustrated and want to through my camera against the wall!!!!! For the life of me, I can not figure out how to do the water drops on glass and have a subject below it. I can focus on the water drops but the subject below isn't even showing up on the water drops! From the pictures, I've done exactly what you guys have done but mine does not work!!!!!!! What are your guys settings? I have OCF (550 or 400 alien bee) so lighting isn't an issue.

I posted this in another thread, but I thought it might fit here too. The Spoon Technique for direct flash, either it's a P&S or a Rebel, or similar.

If you don't have an external flash, and can't bounce it easily for a softer look, here's a trick for you. Always have a spoon in your pocket, and you're set. Angle the spoon some 45° or similar to the flash to soften it.

The result without and with the spoon.

Okay, I hope I'm not going to be the only one who sticks a spoon in his camera bag...even with external flash, that's a freakin' cool idea and needs to be used....

LOL, it's cheaper than buying an Omnibounce, but a bit of a hassle as you sort of lose one hand for stability holding the camera. But for party photo's it could be a neat trick for more pleasing portraits, etc. :)
