Aperture Series: Alpine Creek Redwoods (Focus Shift Study @ 45mm)

This aperture series shows the depth of field requirements when shooting at ~45mm and what to expect in terms of sharpness near/far and across the field.

Test scene

This scene is presented in the AdobeRGB color space, which as a side note blows-out slightly (with no obvious visible effects) in the red channel compared to ProPhotoRGB— always use 16-bit ProPhotoRGB for quality results.
