Thanks for the compliments everyone :)

I am using a Canon digital rebel XTi with a 100mm macro lens.

Lovely photos! Are you using the 100 on auto or manual focus? I have a hard time with that lens getting it to focus on what I want it to, especially as the auto focus is pretty slow. So I leave on manual pretty much all the time. It's a great lens, though, and takes gorgeous shots (as you've proved :) ).

I would be interested in some of the other camera settings if your willing to give that information. :D
Aperture, shutter speed, iso. etc.
Thanks

Top: 1/80th sec. Exp.
Middle: 1/30th sec. Exp.

But those setting don't really matter, Carl. What matters is the amount of light that _you_ have and what that light means to your exposure.

SHE left the EXIF intact ;) I didn't know you could figure all of that out from a picture that I posted! You're definitely going to have to share how you got that information! :)

What computer do you use? As Will says, there are plugins for web browsers. I'm on a Mac. If I'm looking for settings, I quickly download the file from the web browser's cache, choose File -> Get Info, and it's all right there. I then delete the files, of course, as it would be rude (and against the copyright law) for me to keep a photo of yours without asking your permission.

By uploading your file to a website, you are essentially giving me permission to download it (that's how web browsers display pictures), but you haven't given me permission to keep it. If I want to do that, I ask. :)
