Yellow trillium & wild blue phlox, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, TN/NC
This is another photograph that I took while shooting in the Park last Thursday and Friday. It was a great couple of days!
I composed this photo with my TS-E 90mm in mind. I hate wildflower photos that are shot straight down on a subject to get max DOF. The tilt feature of the 90mm, and it’s ability to focus to 1-foot without filters or extension tubes, made it the perfect lens for this setup. I was able to shoot across the scene with lots of tilt at f/18 instead of the normal smallest f-stop of f/32, and maintain maximum sharpness. This is another image that is super-sharp! The TS-E 90mm is one of the sharpest lenses that Canon makes!
Update: I just made a 17″ x 25″ print of this image and I have to say, it is beautiful! The details are amazing! I really believe that Genuine Fractals is allowing me to make images from the 5D equal to drum scanned 6x7cm transparencies with a definite added advantage of the 5D’s ability to capture such a wide dynamic range. I can’t wait for the new 5D to be released! This is a great time to be a photographer!
