Images shot at f/1.4 with the Nikon 24mm f/1.4G; see the full review. These images were shot at dusk walking around Patriarch Grove, high in the White Mountains. A neutral density filter was not needed because conditions were relatively dim. The dull blue lighting did not bring out the gorgeous color of these ancient trees, rendering them somewhat monotone as compared to a warm sunset.
Images minimally processed. Some processed at Standard in Crapture NX2, all lens corrections off, noise reduction off, etc. Others processed with Adobe Camera RAW (Photoshop). White balance, exposure, sharpening were applied. In some cases, fill light or recovery was used, to control contrast.
