Following hot on the heels of Lennybloke and Lubbyman here are some of my efforts with my 135mm and tubes, I have always liked the look of these types of shots, they lack the clinical sharpness of flashed macro, but gain a delicateness with the light and shallow dof.

That's how to do it - 3 and 4 sheer simplicity and near perfection

Oh yes! The word is indeed 'delicateness'. A really lovely set. The buttercup and the last one slightly stand out for me, but that's not to diminish the others.

Great rendering throughout, I really like 3, 4 and 7. Tubes are fun, as I have been discovering recently.

1st and the last. As you say, delicate. But those in between are jostling for position too.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Cheers guys, for me it helps that the samyang 135mm f2 is razor sharp. So even with out flash, the results suit my type of shooting.
And it's a totally different result from using flash.

A fabulous series of shots - this is macro at its best. Have you tried a 50mm on a full set of tubes? I like my A50 f1.7 used in this way, it gives great results. Might have a go with my 135mm Takumar and see what this does.

What aperture settings were used for these?

Hi David, apertures were as follows,
First 4 were f2.8
Next 2 Cockchaffer shots f3.2
Next was wide open at f2
And the last was f2.5

I dont have a 50mm to try out, I might keep my eyes peeled for one.

Definitely have a go with your 135mm tak, should be excellent.

Thanks again.

Ps, should also add that I was using 52mm of tubes for these.
