This is my first test shot with my new AF-S Micro NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED, improvised with a bowl of fortuitously wilting chrysthanemums sitting on our breakfast table. The lens is a beauty. Auto-focus is snappy, image amazingly crisp, color rich and its bokeh as good as it gets.
The monochrome is courtesy Nik Silver Efex Pro and blue/sepia split tone from Lightroom 3.
