I met my friends Richard “Bern” Bernabe and Nye Simmons for a day of shooting in the Smokies yesterday and it was great! We dealt with very gusty winds and some breaks in the clouds, but all in all it was a grand day. Here’s one of my favorites! This was a tough photo due to the wind, so I used lots of tilt to insure sharpness where I wanted it- across the flowers, my main subject. Shooting at f/11 also has a major advantage to sharpness. This is the sweet spot of the lens and the sharpness of the image is incredible!
EOS 5D w/ TS-E 24mm (modified for tilt and rise/fall), f/11, 1/5s, ISO 200
Update! I just made a print from this file and as I expected, it is so sharp! I will have no problem printing this image in the 30″ x 45″ size (possible 40″ x 60″ if needed) using Genuine Fractals.
