I've gravitated back and forth on this subject - is bigger always better? or should we aim for better composition and magnify only when it serves a purpose?
The key problem i think, is that once u magnify, the scope for composition is drastically reduced and the technical complexities increases greatly as well - shallow DOF, more light needed to light up the subject, tripod...
Oh nevermind... Its still fun to do once in awhile when the right subject comes along :)
it works better on a housefly than a lynx spider though...
