Topic: Kiron 28mm f2, Reversed for Macro

This, my first shot (2008) with a reversed Kiron 28mm f2 at f16 ISO 100, probably twin flash. The fungi are each ca 1mm across. I believe this white one to be a Fairy Cup,  Dasychyphus virigineus syn. Lachnum virgineum which usually has water droplets on its hairs.

Looks very promising indeed, Harold... I gave my Kiron 28mm away to a friend a couple of months ago because I didn't use it. It's a very sharp lens. She's into macro so I'll tell her to give this a try... wink

Tell her not to worry about a hood when reversed, at least when using full flash (aimed sensibly).
