Well, that is very soft. If I didn't know otherwise, I'd have thought that was a painting.

BTW, why did you use a TS lens for a still life shot?

Thanks for your comments.
The 90mm tilt shift is ideal for still life and product shots. Not only is it very sharp, but you can alter the plane of focus to give more apparent dof. Therefore less stopping down is needed and optimum apertures can be used.
Also, corrections to the perspective can be applied as you are shooting down on the subject. I hope that helps.

I did not know about the deeper dof. That's pretty cool.
