Holy Macro!

cone flowers....
I purchased a Raynox Macro Lens awhile back after viewing a post from Gail at Louisiana Belle. Everything she says about this lens is 100% correct. Her photos are amazing!
It is an unusual little gizmo and I need a great deal more practice but I was somewhat pleased with the results above. Really what it boils down to is that it is like a magnifying glass that snaps onto your lens! Very different than anything else I have ever used! Very reasonable in price as well! 
With more practice I hope to explore more in the world of macro! 
I used Kim's dream-it texture at 59%.

I was so excited to see that you purchased the Raynox!! What a great image you got!! The colors, texture and angle make this a superb shot. And you explained so simply how the Raynox works. Thank you for the shout-out. So thrilled to see some of my blogging friends using it! Looking forward to more. :)
