The eyes are lovely and sharp but I think you can boost the shadows on the body quite a bit without introducing too much noise. I downloaded it off your Flickr page and tried ... it made quite a difference.

My enthusiasm dies for macro when the summer begins to fade (although I guess that's not 100% the problem)
No equipment list here but thanks for taking an interest. My Flickr

Feel free to post it Mike.
Might give me an idea of how much to push it.
I just ran with my standard pp on this.
So no layers or such.
Genuinely had to force myself to go out.
