Another idea test shot made while I await the arrival of a Raynox 250 macro adapter for my 45-200mm (inspired by the excellent results Gordon gets out of that combination). This version is a very heavy crop, hopefully the Raynox will allow me to capture far more pixels, and thereby detail, in the final set-up. Additional: Unfortunately, as explained in the X-perimental Community thread, this remains the best reflective shot of this particular subject. Enlarge it and you will see lots of problems starting to appear. It turned out that these are due to the (many) imperfections in the balls themselves; and not caused by cropping or any limitation in the resolution of the G1. In other words, in this case, getting closer to the subject does not create a better picture - in reality the reflected image breaks up and looks as bad as it really is.
