Kyle's Carnivorous Basement Adventures [Picture HEAVY]

Well, with the new GH in the basement, I figure it's time to start a new thread. Things are a changin'. ;p

So to kick this thread off, I experimented with my new extension tubes. Kind of a PITA to get used to, but I really like them now, haha. So let's get this party started!

Thank ya much, everyone, I really appreciate all the comments.

@mobile: Canon T1i with a Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM. These are the cheapy tubes I'm using. Very high quality for the price, IMO. Solid aluminum construction, very well machined.

@Drew: f/14. Thanks again for pointing out the preview button!
