Thanks Castillonis for your comments and
suggestions for improvement. This scene posed a
nice challenge for me. I choose the aperature of
F/32 due to the content in foreground, about 15
meters and tree line in background was about 1000
meters away. It was tough to capture during suttle
windy conditions and vehicular activity in the
foreground, which I compensated by pausing many
times during collection. The pause feature of the
EPIC head is great.....
Great leaf colors in the trees. I would decrease
the aperture value from f/32 to about f/11 because
that high of an aperture value will suffer greatly
from diffraction losses. Your subject at a
consistent distance so any increase in depth of
field would not be beneficial unless you are very
close to it. You definitely would benefit from
increasing your shutter speed. If it is windy a
shutter speed that is the reciprocal of the focal
length 1/300s would be optimal. If it is not windy
and the camera has enough time to settle you could
use a shutter speed such as 1/100s.
