    Tubes are a ton of fun...my prefered macro method, actually. I always have a couple with me to get really tight on small stuff. They also serve as an incredibly useful piece of equipment behind the long lenses to shorten up the minimum focusing distance.

    Thanks! It was a real quick and dirty (trying to get it done during nap time). Lighting was strip boxes (10" x 3' soft box) pretty much straight left and right, low angle, with about a 2:1 ratio. I actually started with the thought that I wanted really hard lighting (like 20 degree grids) to accentuate all the little details, but was having a hard time getting decent fill, so I said "f it" and went with the rather unimaginative soft box route, which works but isn't fantastically interesting.

    I like the colors and styles it brings to the table, but I also feel like I'm "cheating" a bit because it can make an ordinary photo look better than it should because of the wow factor. Having said that, I still like to play around with it and use it. Makes for unique imagery.

    Like most things, it's a tool. And the more tools you have, the more options you have. More options, more opportunities at creating a great image.

    The Luddites who piss and whine about digital enhancement are just as clueless as those that think anything shot in HDR equals superior imagery. The process is only interesting if the image is compelling, and if it is something that can be achieved with a Photoshop filter, than it won't be compelling for very long. The most important filter that should be applied to an image is the filter in your head. After that, who gives a **** how it was achieved.

    I meant is it dead within the LGK photog's community.

    With me, it has lost its novelty. The one above was the first one in quite some time that I've put together.

    Honestly? I'm just too lazy to process the HDR. And, I can't figure out how to shoot the bracket images on the D200.
