Took this picture while on a little adventure in the woods of Pa. Wanted to make this picture look more... well beautiful I suppose you could say.

Going Black and White on this colorful spider was, I think, a bold move. I think you pulled it off! If you want a macro lens for little $$$, take an older lens with good glass ( say a 28mm prime ) put an extension tube ( one that will fit your camera ) on the FRONT of the lens ( you may have to use black plastic tape to hold it on ) put the extension tube on the camera and shoot manual through the FRONT of the lens. Focus by moving the camera. I have an old German lens set up like this that works great!
