This is great! I'm stunned you got that much depth of field with F/11.0 though. How did you do it?
Reply
:iconcolinhsillerud:
ColinHSillerud Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2009  Professional Photographer
Very glad you like it. depth of field with a wide lens is really good even at large apertures because they reach infinite focus very quickly. I believe this lens is at infinity past just 7ft so at F11 i have full focus to 2ft from the lens.

hope this helps.

p.s. thank for the fav!

This looks amazing! excellent shot and i love the angle at which you took it!..The time of the day was wisely chosen in my opinion since the natural tones in it stand out and the sky and clouds juxtapose quite nicely! ;]

Oh my GOD, this is lovely. I'm usually dubious when it comes to landscape shots - 'cuz they never EVER look hyper-real like I want them to, but this does. I yearn to be here.

That's the perfect place to set up camp, near this place..

Me, a fishing rod and a tent, that's all I need.

Wonderful shot! :)
