Macro Focus Mode

I thought that I would share some photos I took recently using the Macro Focus Mode on the Leica D-Lux 4. For those of you that may not be familiar with the three focus settings available on this camera they are. Auto Focus used most of the time, Manual Focus used for difficult focusing situations and Macro Focus for close up images.
The picture to the right is that of a rose with water drops and as you can see the water is clear as are the other details on the flower. Click on the image to see a larger version.
I'm embedding a short video of shots that I took and more detailed photos below showing not only traditional macro but also some unusual shoots of statues.

For larger picture see below:

Water on Leaf excellent detail and colors.

Statue taken at about 5 feet shows good detail.

Rose with water drops and highlighted by the pavers in the background.

Lovely color taken F2.o at 18 inches.

Leaf, rocks and moss show enhanced detail after processing with Topaz Labs filter.
