Makro aperture test shots


I was just playing around with my CWD and decided to do a test of how the 120mm Makro-Planar CFE looks at different apertures (22, 16, 11, 8, 5.6 and 4). The setup is CWD with 120mm + 56E extension tube. The background is a white piece of A4 paper and light source is simply a D40 flash on the table. Exposure is 1 sec for f/22, 2 sec for f/16 etc...
All photos have undergone the exact same post production.

I like the f/8 image best, however, the f/11 image is the sharpest. What do you think?
