The bokeh effect of the blurred background behind the whisky bottle is amazing. I spent a ton of money on a lens that *might almost* do that.

For you tractor newbies like me, the front grill guard has two levers on top, pull them down and easily pull the grill away exposing the radiator. Then you can clean the radiator of leaves, weeds, and stems that blow into it, pretty cool and easy. Keeps the radiator from overheating.
