New lens (50mm), and new flash (SB-900). I had to use them both for my next challenge! I've got a little 12mm extension tube on my 50mm. The SB-900 is below the piece of glass on the right, and I was holding a macro flash from above to the left... and! I was holding an empty soda box, which is what the cool orange background is. I knew it needed color after a couple shots, and I just happened to be sitting next to my recycling bin. Tada, orange Diet Rite sunset!

I love the organic warmth emanating from this image. It evokes such tenderness... I like it! Though I think it may look better without the green line at the bottom.
