That is excellent. Nice job. Hopefully you didn't have to buy all new gear to do it?

Very nice macro work.

Can you "drop" a hint as to how it was done?

Nope, I didn't have to buy anything special to pull this one off. Just use my glass end table, my new ball head tripod, (which I absolutely love) a flag from the dollar store and my very own water from my sink. Hey, one quick question though, I'm learning the sharpening techniques, which I might also add, my photos are needing a lot less of, but I sharpen a little right before I save it,,but do I also need to do another sharpening say for instance when I resize it to send to you guys? I was wondering, because once again, this doesn't look as crisp as it did before I sized it...But nevertheless, it is COOL huh!!!!!!!!!!

Yes you do. Down-sampling affects the edge contrast and you will need to add back the sharpness lost to the sampling.

Generally I will process my full rez image, but leave out the final sharpening until I purpose the file for output. In the case of posting in a thread here, I down-sample using Bi-cubic Sharper then tweak it a bit more with Smart Sharpen before saving.

OOOOPS! Sorry Darlene, let me try and clarify.

Sharpening is more art than science, even though there is science behind the art!!

I primarily use PS CS3, but just have added LR3 to the mix so my workflow at the moment is evolving. I believe you use PS Elements do you not? The places and names you find things under are different between Elements and full fledge Photoshop. For me the sharpening is found under filters and you have several choices in the menu that drops down when you hover the mouse over the sharpen category. Using my wife’s computer to access Elements 6, I see that under the Enhanced portion of the tool bar you have two choices of unsharp mask and adjust sharpness. Adjust sharpness is a limited version of Smart Sharpen that’s available in the full Photoshop version.

Bicubic Sharper is an option available with the image size routine. When you bring up the image size box, at the bottom you should see Bicubic. If you click the down arrow to the right of it you should see a bunch of choices for the different interpolation algorithms. We photographers are mainly only interested in the bicubic ones. Some people choose to use bicubic smoother for up or down sampling. But the Adobe recommendation is to use bicubic smoother for up sampling and bicubic sharper for down sampling.

How I was a bit clearer.

If your going from a full resolution D90 capture to Nikonians post requirement, you are down-sampling.

Up-sample would be increasing pixel dimensions and down sample would be decreasing pixel dimensions.
