My Nikon AF-S VR Micro Nikkor 105mm 1:2.8 G ED lens arrived yesterday and was waiting to be unwrapped when I got home. I patiently unwrapped it, taking photos as I went. Here's the lens:
I then took a few snaps with it in the fading evening light. I hand held the camera, a good test for the VR of the lens. I've done some post-processing in Lightroom to fix the white balance, exposure, add an s-shape to the curve and add some vibrance, saturation and sharpening.
First up here are some closeups of my most recent watch purchase.
The Unitas movement shot using natural light (1/60, f/7.1, ISO640)
The movement again, this time using the onboard flash of my D80 (1/125, f/3.2, ISO200)
A closeup of the blued swan's neck regulator using the onboard flash (1/100, f/4.0, ISO200)
I then took a few flower shots (I guess this is a traditional macro subject). The first two are of an orchid my wife bought recently. The final one is of a flower in our garden.
1/60, f/8, ISO200
1/60, f/2, ISO200
1/60, f/10, ISO200
