BTW I know I could benefit from having the Canon 100 macro - quite a lens!

Yes, the 100mm macro is very good. I'm attracted by the form and colour of flowers. Therefore, I tend to walk around them a lot or rotate the vase if I'm dealing with an arrangement, look at them from different angles and take lots of shots to see which ones produce a pleasing effect. Sometimes that means the whole flower but often it means a part of the flower, a line, a curve combined with attractive (to me anyway) coloration. You should use mirror lock-up, a remote shutter release and the self-timer function to prevent or minimize vibration and live view to frame your shots. I recommend you use manual focus, as well. To some extent what you get is a function of how much practice you get.

I should have added, of course, that a tripod is most useful.

Indeed 100mm (in my case) L version is excellent lens. I use it mostly handheld Av, AI Servo mode with 3x3 AF points focussing or zone focussing

A few shots myself. Hope you'll like them. All shot with the 100mm L.
Can you rate them from 1 to 5? First is the best. Thanks!

Very nice pictures! Very well done. Since I must rate them, I'd say #1 is the last picture, #2 is the second last picture, #3 is second picture, #4 is the first picture and #5 is the third picture.
