By the way, is it me or does flickr hugely reduce the sharpness of the images you put on it?
I'm loading up very high quality jpegs and they look very soft on flickr but fine on my monitor when viewed from the hard drive.
Are they compressing the images?

I have three flickr accounts, and I can definitely say there is something weird going on over there. In one account, if I upload pictures, they become really flat, low contrast, and weak in color, but if I upload the same pic to another account (my "pro" account that I paid for) it looks about like it does in photoshop. I put either this photo up or one from the same set about 8 months ago, and it looked pretty poor. I thought it was resizing that killed the color. Here in my "pro" account, though, it looks quite nice.

Mookalaflasalafa, nice shot. Well the first one anyway. All my shots look a lot flatter and darker on Flickr, I only have a poor mans account.

Wide, my other accounts didn't do that, even before I paid for the one that is now "pro." I definitely believe you though. There is probably some reason for the discrepancy, but I don't know what it is...I would be very frustrated, however, if every time I tried to share my work it got mashed like photo 2 above:mad:

Looking at the two pictures though, I actually prefer the mans face in picture 2, but the rest of the picture looks so muddy, which is a problem I get with a lot of the pictures I upload. I came to the conclusion is was my bad photographic technique, but maybe it isn't after all. Though I suspect it is!!!

Thanks for your comments people :)

bobo- In-flight, this was the best I could do today, but I will nail one soon.
I made sure this was not hovering, focus was hard to get on the eye but I think I was close.
Taken with 100mm & 68mm of Kenko tube.

Hi, this is from the manufacture, I hope it is of some help :)

Kenko DG Teleplus Extension Tube Set

Extension tubes are designed to enable a lens to focus closer than its normal set minimum focusing distance. Getting closer has the effect of magnifying your subject (making it appear larger in the viewfinder and in your pictures). They are exceptionally useful for macro photography, enabling you to convert almost any lens into a macro lens at a fraction of the cost while maintaining its original optical quality.

The DG extension tubes have no optics. They are mounted in between the camera body and lens to create more distance between the lens and film plane. By moving the lens father away from the film or CCD sensor in the camera, the lens is forced to focus much closer than normal. The greater the length of the extension tube, the closer the lens can focus.

The KENKO DG AUTO EXTENSION TUBE SET contains three tubes of different length, a 12 mm, 20 mm, and 36 mm, which can be used individually or in any combination to obtain the desired magnification. Kenko also makes a DG UNITUBE 12 mm or 25 mm which can be purchased individually.

Kenko's Auto Focus extension tubes are designed with all the circuitry and mechanical coupling to maintain auto focus and TTL auto exposure with most Canon, Nikon, and Minolta lenses given there is enough light to activate the cameras AF system properly.

Please Note;

1. When using extension tubes the lens will not focus to infinity. The focus range will be greatly limited to a very close focusing distance.

2. There is light fall off when using any extension tube, sometimes the equivalent of 3 f-stops of light is lost when using multiple extension tubes together. This light lost can affect the camera's ability to auto focus. Manual focusing is recommended should the lens begin to "hunt" (not lock onto the subject).

3. Nikon "D" information is not transmitted because the lens is focusing closer than its programmed to focus.

4. Kenko DG Auto Extension Tubes are auto focus compatible with Nikon AF lenses including Nikon AF-S (silent Wave) lenses.

Thanks Peter, I have a lot to learn but I think I'm finally starting to pick a few things up.
please don't write macro off just yet, think back to how your shots looked when you first started this hobby and how the look now!!
That's the main fault with macro, you don't seem to get many keepers ;)
My macro shots are improving but outside macro I'm honestly totally rubbish.
