Hey guys just got a YASHICA 50mm 1.9 reverse macro purpose... been wanting to try the reverse, and finally got a chance when i got this from ebay for 6 bucks... seems good to me, need some unbiased opinions let me know what you'll think? ohh yea used k10d with 422d wireless triggered, some lightroom editing
Thanks for looking

ps. the weird waves in the bokeh are from resizing... tried to fix but no luck

Nice first attempts, but be aware that MACRO brings out every little impurity on your sensor (just below the center of the faucet nozzle on both images is a spot from debris on your sensor) so you have to be diligent on "healling" them away.
