Resized 100% Crop

I am going to try a 60 mm macro lens for my Fujifilm X-T1 camera to see if I can get up closer and make detail images.  While I am waiting to get it and try it, I decided to see how well I could resize my X-file raw images.  Since I had the following picture of the wild flower taken at f/2.8 with the 27 mm lens, I used it for an experiment.

The image is a 4896 x 3264 pixel raw file that has been processed in LR6.  I cropped the above image to capture a small image of the flower in the middle.  The resulting crop was only 1005 x 670 pixels.  I then resized it up with Perfect Resize 8 plugin to my standard blog image size which is 2000 pixels on the longest edge.  I am impressed with the quality of the resized image.

I can hardly wait until I get some images with the 60 mm macro.  My desire is to make abstract images from sections of flowers, etc. as well as use it for photographing events when I need a slightly longer focal length.  My current plan is to have this as my longest focal length lens.

Here is another resized image.
