One more for the series. As I am pixel peeping, the sharpness and resolution delivered by the "Leni" lens is really outstanding. I was not expecting performance this good for close-up work like this. As with the others in the series, the flower is sitting in front of a white wall in the studio, side lit by a window about six feet away. I used Nik Color Efex Pro Bleach Bypass effect to reduce saturation and increase contrast.
