AkaRaku chawan with a crane
Aka raku chawan, a cup for the Tea Ceremony in red raku with a crane painted on it. For this photo I used the Nikon 180 mm. plus the extension tube PK 12 to get a close up. I must say, I prefer the 105 mm Micro Nikkor, has a better boken effect, means it blur more dramatically the picture. I bachlit the image with a strobe light to have a short exposure time.
