Crop-Zoom Examples

These all have one common characteristic.  I have been considering getting a macro lens, but I doubt it is worth it for what I have to photograph.  What is common with all of the above images is that I cropped the original images considerably and then up-sized them to get the above sizes.  It is best to click on one of the images and then look at them in slide show mode.  You can scroll down below the views and select an even larger view for each of them individually if you wish to get a better idea of what one gets when crop-zooming and resizing.
