    What extension rings do you have? I have Canon equipment but have never tried the extensions.

I love my extension rings too it allows you to get a little more out of your macro lens.
    I haven't taken it out of its case for so long maybe this will make me dust it off and shot a few pics

    I can't remember we're I bought them but they were cheap like 20 30 bucks. Worth every penny imo.

    Bush, learn how to shoot your pix in RAW format. The software that comes with your camera allows you to manipulate the RAW format pictures and then save as a .jpg. Working with RAW is much easier than JPG, when making adjustments.

    I use the Canon editing software. RAW is a Canon specific format. Another free one is called RAW Therapee
