  2. Is this your photo? I´m sure it´s not.
    Let me guess - you saw Troy´s post and just wanted to post something even
    more impressive ... well you failed. A good macro is a bit more than just
    being close.

    Well, since this _is_ usenet, no one will object to a bit of pedantry.
    Macro, good, bad or indifferent, is nothing to do with being close and
    everything to do with the subject size : recorded image ratio.

    True, if good, bad, or indifferent, but Markus specified "good" macro.

    Markus might be your arbiter of truth but I repeat, it's true
    irrespective of quality.

    No, I saw it on the manual group and thought it was impressive
    especially for using a non-dedicated macro lens.
    You paranoid Kraut goon.

    Rich never implied it was. He clearly said:

    ""It came from this post in a manual lens forum""
    Yes, a good macro is sharply focused, well composed (say a strong
    diagonal composition), exposed with great color and contrast and with a
    compelling subject showing fine detail.

    Just like the one posted.

    And if you like such things, there are dozens of photogs posting similar
    quality and great subjects at .
