Imagery: Auto - Large Table of Contents
Nikon 16-35/4 VR and 17-35/2.8 (not to scale)  
Nikon 85mm f/1.4G

Examples at Golden Gate Bridge

These images are shot at various distances and apertures.

Processing

Nikon Capture NX 2.2.6 beta at Standard. All noise reduction off, all lens corrections OFF. Post processing in Photoshop typically Smart Sharpen {100, 0.2, 0} and sometimes a small amount of saturation.
