Flower Study at 50mm

I got a new lens. I've been working toward this one for a while. It's the Nikkor 50mm f/1.4. Man, that's fast glass. Had to try it out, and Jenn had some flowers on the counter. I also have a set of macro lenses that stack on the front of my lens, so I piled them and gave it a whirl. I think they look pretty good for a quick set up in the kitchen. A great advantage to using these macro lenses is that the flower now fills the entire sensor in my camera; this means maximum resolution without cropping to get the composition I desire like I would have to do if I shot from farther away. Can't wait to work this lens on portraits.

Nikon D90, 50mm lens, f/16, 1/30s, ISO 200.
