Bokeh Aperture Series: Peach Blossoms (D800E)

Taken on the 36-megapixel Nikon D800E at apertures ƒ/2, ƒ/2.8, ƒ/4, ƒ/5.6, ƒ/8. The lighting was a bit harsh, but for an aperture series it wasn’t feasible to use a reflector for fill light.

Peach Blossoms

There is not much to say here other than it is a difficult subject in contrast and in the delicacy of the color tones, and the D800E + Zeiss 135/2 APO-Sonnar has handled it gracefully.

Every aperture is beautifully, and no harshness develops with stopping down.
