Both versions of the same image. (3G, Canon 5D, ISO 200, f4, 1/3200 sec.)

Bill,


I love barn pictures. Both are very nice, but the color version is my favorite.

Nicely done. I can't wait to get out there in Sept 09 for a workshop I am doing.

Hi William...

If you were to have used f/8 or /f/16 would it increase the sweet spot to encompass the entire barn?

I like the color best.

Thanks for the feedback. Larry, yes a smaller aperture like f8 would yield a larger sharper sweet spot. I almost never use apertures smaller than f8 with the 3G though, just too much sharpness. Another factor here is how much you bend. The more bend, the narrower the plane of focus for your sweet spot is also. I'm not one for rules so I recommend experimenting shooting a few beyond what you would normally deem as an acceptable image. Sometimes those experiments yield a better result. It just depends on the subject matter, your distance from the subject and the desired effect you want. I tend to like my foreground subject "sliced" with a shallow field of focus and dropping off soft rather quickly. This is achieved better with wider apertures like f2.8, f4 or even no aperture insert at all.
