I finally saved enough money to get a set of Kenko extension tubes. How did I do for my first try?

Thanks very much. This was taken with my 28-135mm lens and the 12mm Kenko tube.

Thanks very much, they are pretty easy to work with. I took about 15 shots and about half turned out nice and sharp.

Could you possibly send me a link or direct me where I could find extension tubes for my canon t2i?

- Would it be something along the lines of these ^^ ?

I did some research before I bought mine and Kenko is the way to go. Here's a link:

I haven't yet but I will. I'll try to remember to do that over the next few days and post the results here.

Thanks a lot, I thought it turned out pretty nice but it helps to ask someone else too. I set my aperture at f/7.1 for this shot. I wanted more of the flower bud in focus.

I wanted you to see this shot also. I think this one is my favorite from that day.

Both shots are very nice. I think I'd crop the 2nd one to reduce some of the oof area.

Thanks very much and I'll take a look at a different crop.
