This afternoon Nancy completed her new necklace, "Empress" and I was able to photograph it this evening.  I very much enjoy photographing Nancy's work and one of my favorite lens to use for this task is a 90mm Tamron manual focus macro lens.  The second shot was done with that lens and then I cropped and enlarge to get the third photograph.  No photoshop necessary when you have a lens that is as crisp as the macro lens tends to be.
