ok Paul, followed your guide roughly and today i took my first 2 shots with the home made diffusor. Instead of 1x8mm layer of foam i placed 2 x 3mm, as I could not find an 8mm one :D. The strawberry still looks too hot to my liking, but better than without diffusion. Could it be because it is highly reflective? The glue tube looks better. What do you think? almost no modifications on the images.

And I need to clean my sensor :D

They both look good to me.

The strawberry will reflect some light - unless it's old fruit when the skin has lost some of its freshness.

The glue tube has no hotspots on it that I can see - so success there for me.

All looking good Sergio!

Paul.

Here is the stigma at the centre of one of the Lily flowers in the vase in the living room.

Mitopus morio: The female of the species of harvestman is usually larger than the male and has a dark brown saddle on a pale background; in the male the saddle is blacker. So this is likely to be the female.

Damn it! Now I need a ring light. :lol: Nice light on those macros cuba. Looks great to me but I'm no expert.

This was taken with my second camera the 6D but you are a friendly bunch in here. This was my sisters wedding in Ireland. I was hoping for a nice sunset but the cloud spoiled the party. What you guys think?

I hope she took the little bus there!. Giant's Causeway is one of my favorite trips in Ireland. I like the photo! The horizon is a bit tilted though. Good job, man. Maybe her right hand on his chest? :lol::lol::eek::lol::lol:

I'm sure they love it

Roasted corn. One of the best snacks ever. Very popular in the north of Spain, but hardly found here in Ireland. Just found that they sell them in one shop near my place.

I drove them down! Soon as the national trust leave for the evening it is a free for all down there. When we got down 4 other cars and a Motorbike.

Horizon was straight maybe the curve of the lens causing it to look off.

After having a second look, I think you are right, it is the lens.

I was there a few weeks ago just after the national trust left. To be honest, the price is a bit of a rip off. You are better off waiting until they leave

You can still go down free when they are there. They just don't publicise that fact. You can go over the roof of the centre, through the bus tunnel or around the hotel and walk down. The visitor centre is over priced. I still haven't been in it.

Also carrick-a-rede dont pay if you arent going to cross. If there is someone with you that just wants to walk down but not cross you dont have to pay. Thats the money saving tips for today :lol:
