I am a complete newbie when it comes to any kind of photography. Be kind :-)

It seems I like the "macro" world.

I use a G2. For the second one, the bugs were fighting over the brown carcass but I just missed catching it by 5 seconds. Also, I altered the brightness, contrast and intensity in the second one.

Both images were cropped to highlight detail.

Those are amazing photos, I love the first one particularly! What zoom did you use on that?

Would you recommend a G2? I mostly do glamour photography (I'm still learning..) but I'd love to do nature and landscape photography also as a hobby.

If you are a newbie now, I just wonder what you are going to perform later on. Cause this is really good work. Nice shots!!!
