...swirvy cool jewel...

..never tried a macro before...bought some really cheap $8.00 extension tubes just for this shot...learned a lot (the shallow depth of field meant that I couldn't get the full field in focus...so took four shots at different focuses and tried to stack them...missed out a vital part of the image though - midsection is out of focus, numpty!!! - also had to set exposure and shutter speed manually too - trial and error, error mostly - then stuck a couple of swirvy cool group logos in as jewels)...all advice more than welcome...then hopefully the next one will be better...
