Here is a shot of mine trying to get the hang of the reversed lens macro technique
So the EXIF would be something like 1/15s F0 ISO 400 @ 1/125mm (?)
what doe you think about it. Any suggestions for improvement would be greatly aprecciated.

Firstly let me say I appreciate it is very difficult to take these shots, espcially if handheld(?)
a) the main coloured lump is a bit too central, compositionally.
b) it also seems to be in focus on the extreme near edge of central part and the nearest pale pink bit, in other words, I think would have tried to focus a little further into the subject, or moved a bit closer.
c) even then, it isn't really sharp anywhere and I wonder if your handholding the lens or didn't sharpen sufficiently
When I get a chance, I'll take some extension tube shots and you can critique mine in return
Keep going, I'm sure it's just early days in a new technique for you and as you go on you'll improve.
Hope that helps,

Then get ready for it
Yes it was handheld and not an ideal situation for this type of shot.
About the focus point, I think you're right but it's so difficult to get your focus exactely were you want it. It's about very very little movements with your hands. Quite difficult when you're holding your camera in front of your face for 15 min already.
I'll try some other shot this week with tripod and a better set-up for the shot.
Thanks very much for the comment
