Really nice photos both of you guys have taken.
Ariocarpus or anyone else, Do you have any hints for getting depth of focus with macro. I can only get a small area in focus with mine. Here are some of my best tries.

Hello Simon,
Nice close-up photos. Low "depth of field" in Macro photography is very well known and general problem (I would say physical fact) - to improve it you have to increase aperture (this is possible on expensive compact cameras or on DSLR) & this means + to use external flash with diffuser. No other option  :-\
