NICE!

I really like the contrast of the green and yellow, the contrast also really plays well on the quality of the OOF.

This is my current go-to for all my product shots. I also use and love the 105mm Micro-Nikkor but this 55mm is somewhat more practical for what I do. It has some sentimental value as well - was passed on to me from my father - used to be his walkabout on his Nikkormat - I took some of my very first photos through it. And now it's my workhorse! :)

Ah, another lens I can relate to.
I found mine on Craigslist and had my son pick it up for me since it was in San Diego. He ended up giving it to me as a birthday present since it was so cheap. It's old and fairly well worn but it can still make some nice pictures. Here's one of the first shots I took with it after getting it. Just fooling around with it while listening to some music.

Great shot...is that a Pioneer RT-701?
I used to own one, but have sold it a long while ago.

All wide open with the aperture compensating version of my neglected racing bike on NEX6 (warning can hurt the eyes of bike lovers...) and one from this autumn on A7
