Reader Comments on Spectacular Fall Color in Eastern Sierra

Wojciech P writes from Vienna:

Dear Mr. Chambers

Your autumn impressions are pure magic for me!!! visual poetry and grace. I hope you will give us more of it!

Finally -a little technical question: how did you adjusted the sharpness on your D3x plus Zeiss handheld so perfectly?

DIGLLOYD: Yes, I plan on publishing a batch of my images from the trip in my Zeiss Guide (from the 35/1.4 Distagon and 25/2.8 Distagon), and also images in DAP for the Hartblei 80mm f/2.8 and Schneider 90mm f/4.5 and Canon 8-15mm f/4L.

Sharpening I do in ACR at present, during RAW conversion. This is also detailed in Making Sharp Images.

Not everything I shoot is handheld, but it is my preference; I do much better shooting handheld in terms of keeper, though my “June Lake area drainage” fall-color shot was an exception. I discuss technique for sharp handholding at low shutter speeds in Making Sharp Images. I can get critically sharp images down to about 1/30 second, and as low as 1/8 second, provided I take 3 or 4 frames as the shutter speed drops towards 1/8 second, but I have a very high keeper rate at 1/30 second with a good professional camera, like the D3x. The secret is what I call “mass coupling”, which I detail in MSI.

I will have quite a few more fall-color images, but also some other variety, such as shown below. As usual for subscribers, these are presented at up to 2048 pixels wide along with actual pixels crops.
