Macro Photography

I am just starting to learn about macro photography and thought I would try to take some close-ups of my Beverly K engagement ring.  I am getting married in May!!  I also thought I would post some information about macro photography that I found to be helpful.  Who would have thought that close-ups would be called "macro"? is kind of confusing.  I want to get some macro lenses or filters that may help get a better shot.  Does anyone have any suggestions about what to get?  See the link below for a good macro site.

A Walk in the Park

My sister and I went for a walk in the Golden Gate Park yesterday and found some beautiful flowers. Although it is only the beginning of February, I would say spring is on the way! Check out my attempt at macro photography (close-up) shots of flowers. I actually think some of them came out pretty well!

I went for a walk in the park today and was able to take some pretty nice pictures of the Conservatory of Flowers.  I included the EXIF information.  The last one is a bit overexposed, but thought I would put it on there for reference.  I think my favorite is the top one. Let me know which one you like the best and why.
