comment What does the magnification ratio number mean on a macro lens?
@jrista I doubt there is any "official" definition of "macro", but yes, such line is drawn quite often; added a note on that.

comment How to reduce the effect of bright day light in the photographs?
@Anisha By "special equipment", I mean anything that would help you to shoot from a higher position, be it a tripod, monopod, ladder, kite, hydraulic lift, ... You'd need a bigger aperture (f divided by a smaller number) for blurring background, f/22 would be even worse than f/8.

comment How to reduce the effect of bright day light in the photographs?
@Anisha Yes, it makes sense. You'd have to keep the angle to ground the same - so shoot from higher when further away. Of course, it might be impossible without special equipment. Another possibility is to find a similar tree+puddle combination with a better background - try starting with other trees around the same puddle.

comment How to reduce the effect of bright day light in the photographs?
@Anisha The idea of the reflection is great, but the photo is ruined by the bright white and red houses in background. They are not intended to be part of composition, but their color and sharpness demands attention from viewer. A shallow depth of field (not achievable for such a large scene using a small sensor camera) and tighter perspective (shooting and zooming from further away) might help to alleviate this.

comment Are there any options for a very cheap, small, and reasonably fast camera?
I also had a look at DealExtreme offerings, but it's quite hard to tell how fast these cameras are.
