    I know a bunch of us have used the Macro mode and posted pictures, but I think it's about time we showed off our macro shots with this camera.

    Here is a fairly recent one from me to get us started. I only used Lightroom to enhance the RAW (DNG) output. (I also posted it on the Flowers thread in the Nature Image forum.)

    Thanks Andrew, I do too. I'm lucky my husband likes them as well.:wink:

    Here's another older one from the garden. Echinacea this time...that I remember using the Macro mode for. Now it's time for others to ante up!

    Wow BB, one word comes to mind "POP!" Lovely rendition....

    ...and Sue the level of detail proves just how sub-standard the X100's macro mode truly is....NOT! Thank you for sharing...

    Thank you Sue - dandelions are my friends:wink: and your photo shows off the depth of field controls very nicely!

    OK, Mark - your turn!

    I got this shot today, little flowers out in the back yard, thought they might look good for this thread :)

    I've got a plugin to extract exif data from photographs, assuming it hasnt been stripped out. (I leave mine in, usually)
    So for the dandelion:
    Camera Maker: FUJIFILM

    Camera Model: FinePix X100

    Image Date: 2011-08-30 10:17:20 +0000

    Focal Length: 23mm

    Aperture: f/5.0

    Exposure Time: 0.0020 s (1/500)

    ISO equiv: 250


    Theres a lot more info so I didnt put in irrelevancies.

    Sadly, Kerri's has been stripped, as had BB's

    Gorgeous! So full of happiness and bursting with color and light! Just commented on Flickr, too.:2thumbs:

    Armando, I went back and edited my two to add the f stop and ISO for you. It would be great if people included it, agreed.:thiagree:

    I'll find my data on the originals tomorrow and put them up :)

    Thanks for the comment BbW!

    Hmm..., thanks BB. The often pictured Camellia out the front yard - I can't help it they are pretty impressive in their fleeting perfection - today immaculate, tomorrow withered - this one was just turning. Also thought I'd see how the new Topaz Labs B+W Effects plug-in handled the file. Not bad really. As good as Silver Efex Pro? Well, not quite sure yet but at least Topaz works, my SEP is giving me nothing but curry ATM!!!!

    P.S. Sorry Armando, I forgot.:blush:

    Both converted to B&W in LR. Shot against a black background, however I further "blackened" it to even it out and get total black.

    I just saw your reference to my EXIF info being stripped. Very strange since it's all there on Flickr, just click on it and and use the drop down menu. I'm surprised it doesn't show up using the plug in.:confused:

    kevenv, your two black and white's have, to me, a film feel about them. Probably it's the all black background which worked out really nicely, I think, to show of nature's ways so beautifully.

    A little more research reveals that none of the flickr images posted have EXIF data available via the plugin, in spite of it being on flickr itself. Some daft restriction imposed by flickr I suppose. My shots from imageshack show it ok, as do those posted on this site directly.
