Macro fun with a broken lens. Took that broken Vivitar lens out today to play...and discovered it was even more broken than I thought. I was completely unable to use any aperture on the lens except wide open. Wide open on a macro gives you a very VERY narrow field of focus! LOL! Anyway, I tried...I had fun...and I kinda like the results.
I'll have to see about getting the lens to the manufacturers to see about getting a replacement.
CC welcome, but keep in mind...not much I could do about the depth of field on these. I'd love feedback on composition and post processing.
All images at 100mm, AP 3.5, manual focus and handheld (YIKES!). ISO and shutter speed varied.

#5 is my favorite! I cannot WAIT for SPRING here!!!
These look wonderful I really like #2. Wish that #6 didn't have a bit of a chop. And I'm a fan of the backlighting in #4
Off to add the macro to the almost-top of my list....

Um, doesn't matter if it's broken, I'm in love with them! #2 and 6, wow!

Spectacular results despite the broken lens! I love number 2.
I'm bummed because I just this morning learned there was an orchid show in D.C. this past weekend. It would have been a great opportunity for macro practice....
