So I finally purchased the Nikon 50mm f/1.8 D lens after some extensive research. I am extremely happy with my choice after going out this afternoon and testing it out. I am still relatively new to the world of DSLR, but I have been doing countless hours of research and learning everything about the camera. These photos were taken with my D60 (focusing manually, since I can't autofocus).

Comments and Critique's are definitely welcome! Enjoy!

Seems like you found a new friend. #4 & 5 really pop. Did you do any post sharpening on these? Enjoy
Thank you! No absolutely no post sharpening/processing... I actually haven't gotten to that level yet... I am still learning the in's and out's of my camera/lenses.

I purchased mine for $110 dollars. You can't go wrong!

I love No. 1... the OOF objects similar to in focus flowers create a very nice image in my view.
Thank you! Yea, I can really see the different depths. Not sure if that was what I was really going for... I was just chasing bees! But it seemed to work out. The bokeh is ridiculous on this lens!

Yes, I think I've seen all the threads related. I figured I would dedicate one to my review of this lens. Plus it was the first time I was posting photos. Oh and I checked out your challenge thread... Good luck!
