Cactus, The Money Shot ~ Magnification 1:1
Nikon D90 and 105mm Micro ~ Magnification 1:1 ~ Shutter: 1sec ~ f/57 ~ ISO: 200
'The Money Shot' was shot at f/57 the maximum f-stop at 1:1 for this lens therefor some detail (sharpness) would certainly be lost due to Lens Diffraction. This sample would indeed have been a little sharper if shot with a wider aperture. However for these first samples I wanted show this lenses best depth-of-field.
