I love this lens - it's awesome. The clarity is amazing compared to the 14-45 kit lens. I hand held this at 1/40 with a focal length of 14mm and could not believe how sharp parts were. I'm definitely sold on this lens!

Oh and I like the picture too. :) But I have been pretty misunderstood on Tuesday challenges lately. So I'm figuring that if this scores a 5.5, I'm doing pretty good. If it scores a 6+ I may have to consider running out and buying a lottery ticket :P

Hi Michelle, this is still one of faves of this challenge, I am surprised it didn't score higher, yet another case an under-appreciated TS shot! love the dof and textures, wonderful detail. Ain't new macro lenses fun? :-)

Did you get that lottery ticket yet? Good idea for this challenge, this is sharp in all the right spots. You suds-ed a $2 bill!

I'd say it scored pretty darn well - did you get the lottery ticket yet? Lovely lighting, a $2 bill (how cool!) and yes, that lens seems to provide exceptional results in sharpness. I really like your take on "money laundering" - very creative and well executed.

Good luck with your lottery ticket ;)

Amazing clarity is right. I love the little bubbles everywhere, and the glossiness of the water is very pretty. Can't believe you did this to a $2 bill though, very funny. Congrats on another great picture and score.

Hey.....go get that lottery ticket! LOL A 6+ Score and a new president all in the same night.

Congrats on a great shot! Really clear and well done.

(I was waiting to see one of your famous "clothes line and pins" shots....calling it "Laundering Money". *wink*)

Nice idea, it looks like you have the focus and exposure down well. There is a bit of glare on the quarter. For me, I guess the composition and the impact of the image aren't sufficient to drive the score high.

Nice take on a popular expression. One of my favourite so far.
