I made a comment some time ago about the potential for using long lenses for landscape shots, here’s another example. Even if I’d stopped the lens right down, there was no way the overhanging branch was ever going to be sharp in the image, just not enough depth of field, so I was happy to leave it as an indistinct element. The colour that was present at the time is very much as you see it in the finished image. I tried a couple of different exposure levels on this, but liked this one, there’s just a hint of detail in the foreground and I like the backlighting effect on the early morning ground haze. Enjoy KD.
Canon 5D with 500mm lens at F8.0, shutter speed 1/3200 second at ISO 400.
How did you go at guessing the settings for the hornbill image from Friday? I used the 500mm lens, which given the number of 500mm shots I’ve published, might have been the easy part to get. As for the rest; F8.0 and shutter speed 1/250 second at ISO 400. Close Steve, very, very close!
