I used word "magnificent" here as a derivative from "magnification" (увеличение, усиление)
Extension tube which I used (it is mounted between lens and camera on DSLR cameras) is in fact kind of natural magnifying glass, or magnifier.
But, in contrast to teleconverter - it doesn't have lens inside, so you can still enjoy original aperture of your lens (F2.8 in my case)
DOF is very shallow with extension tube, and you need much more accuracy while doing focus.
And of course focusing is manual only - camera autofocus gives up on such kind of macro shots!
And here is result of that work.
As you probably know, I love sedum growing in my garden.
It's incredibly beautiful flower- but you need to be patient to see its beauty!
And extension tubes with macro lens help here a lot.
Mind small white dots on the end of petals - some flowers look like a king's (queen's?) crown, and those white dots remind diamonds or pearls! LOL:
