Processed in LR. punched the contrast and the blacks up, a little sharpening, a TON of dust removal. This is not a crop, just scaled down. I wish I could share the full view with you all.

So I picked up a Close Up filter for my 70-200. I brought the min focus distance from about 5 feet to about 28 inches!. For 130 bucks I get a tack sharp macro. Anyway, this is a shot I took while playing around with it on the first day. I;m not rally experienced in macro photography, but I'll enjoy learning.

That was a great cigar btw.
