Tadadam, something from me:

Nice one mipr -- sorta better than mine.

I know this is not a contest otherwise you would have gotten rid of the flaming huge rod running from top to bottom of the shot that makes it look so ugly.

LOL.

Three from last summer with the kit lens. I have better glass this year, and just got some extension tubes. Can't wait until they are blooming again.

1. Anemone from Farmington Historic Home in Louisville, KY.

2. Daylily from my backyard.

3. Another daylily from my backyard. Why are yellows so blasted difficult?

I love the third one ematsuda, just really 3d and nearly pops right out of the frame. The 100/2 produces some gorgeous bokeh.

A couple of BW transforms from my garden...

All were transformed using Bibble BW Tool simulating Ilford FP4 Film printed on Kodak Portra.

Entropy, thanks. This lens rivals my STF in bokeh quality to tell you the truth. I don't have or never have owned a lens with such beautiful bokeh before. The 100/2 is a pocket sized G - better as a matter of fact - not kidding. It outperforms anything I have at the moment in IQ with the exception of the STF - however, STF, as you know is MF so the 100/2 is currently my best. #3 not taken at full aperature though - f2.8 I think. I sold my 85/1.4 RS in favor of this one. The 85 is super too but I just preferred the longer lens for candids but the bokeh is IMO still better - smoother. Maybe because of the longer focal length - dunno. From the time I got it until now, it's attached to my cam as default. Only if I can't take the pic with it does it come off. :) In the past, my Tam 90 was my fav. Here's another sample.
