Thanks guys! Much appreciated!

They are kaffir lime leaves from my yard and the background is an old pizza pan that I pulled out of storage.

Could you say something about postprocessing and settings? I am wondering if the microcontrast is a matter of a lens, or did you have to play with it, lower blacks, add USM, etc?

Sure! Of course the lens is very important which is why I generally shoot with the FA 31 Limited when it comes to my still life work. The combination of the classic rendering, the microcontrast, and maybe just a little bit of that infamous pixie dust hidden between the pixels all make for a really strong foundation to work from. I did bump up the contrast a bit which is fairly standard for me and did some dodging and burning here and there. Also played with the whites and blacks a bit to make it punchier along with applying some clarity/sharpening to certain specific areas. Lightroom 4 is my software of choice. Thanks for the interest!
