you need to tell us what settings you used. Not sure if you mean INCREASE depth of field rather than reduce as dof looks pretty shallow in #1 already?

Good ones- lovely colour.
Sounds as if you have ext tubes with no contacts. Are you pre- setting the aperture of the lens before using the extension tubes ?
You can do this by attaching the lens normally set an aperture in Av mode (say F8) press the DOF preview button and remove the lens whilst keeping the button depressed. Then put the ext tube on and attach the lens to it.
