Youíre welcome. It did cross my mind that you may have intentionally taken the shot that way. When you try creative stuff, which is great, sometimes subtle stuff does not always work.For example foreground in pin sharp focus with the mid and background totally out seems to be appreciated. Foreground out of focus seems not to work as well. If you have access to Photoshop or similar (GIMP) the free package from the web you can `unsharpen` selected parts of the image which can make the shot more interesting. If you donít like the result you can revert back to the original shot. All the close up stuff that I take is with the Canon 18-55 lens. For best results a macro lens gives you a lot of extra detail and is worth the money if you intend doing a lot of this type of stuff. The shot attached was taken on a hand held camera, with a standard lens. If you look closely at the wings, the tips are very slightly soft. This was caused by using a small aperture, for max depth of field which resulted in a longer exposure which did not quite freeze the small amount of movement of the wings.

Advice taken on board, and appreciated, however on this occasion I purposely shot those pictures in that way, for contrast and to attract attention to the parts in focus.

Cheers for your advice though!

Can I make a suggestion, when taking still life shots especially close ups itís very important that you get the entire image in very sharp focus. What normally happens is that there is not always sufficient lighting to allow the camera to function on a small aperture ie f16 and below which gives you a good depth of field. You focus on a part of the object, which results in that part being in focus but other parts will be out of focus; this is one of the problems of close up photography.
A couple of ways around this. You can use additional lighting. Digital cameras are very tolerant of the types of lighting that can be used without causing a color cast over the image. Depending on the lights used you can get a blue to gold cast. Digital does not suffer as badly. You could use flash but at close up distances it tends to wash out the image. The easiest way is to use the smallest aperture you can get away with which will give you a longer exposure. This can be a problem because exposure will reach a point where camera shake will give a blurry image. A tripod and a remote control will allow you to use a longer time exposure with a small aperture which will give you a crisp image across all of the subject.
Not wishing to tell people how to suck eggs but I hope this helped.

It's f4.5-5.6 mate. Also got a HSM and is OS. Apparently the OS is really good on that model.
