    i must say, however, that this little badge is generating discussion, pondering, and critique far beyond what might have been expected when Gunny first picked it up.
    But much better than a list of one liner comments.

    It's good to see a decent discussion going and generating some good points in a well presented manner!

    Thank you all so much for the discussion, it's great to see so much interest. Yes i'll admit to anyone i aint the worlds best photographer, i'll try to get some more shots tomorrow in natural light.
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Sad to say, though, it's all academic. Even if this were an absolutely original badge(which I do not believe it is, of course), it's horridly worn down almost to oblivion and has been drastically mutilated, losing all of it's "original" hardware and having a big strange Clip of some sort glob-soldered onto it's back. Monetary value? Zippo, I'd have to say. About all it might be useful for would be to shim beneath a wobbly table leg...

    hahahaha! nooooo! i have this image of visiting a friend for coffee at a particularly stable table, only to look down and find it's been made that way by the judicious placement of an SWB.

    i mean sure... it's worth nothing. but it provides a decent exercise with respect to practicing your critiquing skills. that's got to be worth something in this endless endeavor we're all wallowing in!

    If anyone visits William, it might be worth remembering to check under the legs of his furniture. You might just find a DKiG or the odd Blut Ordern lying about the place.......

    I've got one of those lenses which can take some superb close ups in the right conditions. The lens needs to be a little way away from the subject though. For proper macro shots, you need a dedicated macro lens. Is the Tamron the only lens you have with the camera?

    It's the only lens i have with a macro capability, maybe i do need a dedicated macro lens for this forum!...

    Take your photos from a little further away so the lens can focus. The rest can be done with a photoshop program.
