Aperture Series: Aspen Trunks

The goal of this aperture series is primarily to show the rendering characteristics (bokeh) of the Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM pancake lens.

The series is presented at 50% (linear) of actual pixels (22-megapixel Canon 5D Mark III), and is best viewed on a very high resolution (Retina) display.

Test scene

The light was very blue with a strong green tint. Most of this has been white-balanced out.
