Zeiss Loxia 35/2 Biogon Aperture Series: Solo Bristlecone, Earth Shadow (also, banding and tonal transitions).

Zeiss Loxia 35mm f/2 Biogon

I found this image to be very satisfying, because it exhibits a delicacy not often found in outdoor landscape images. It also shows how f/2 on the Loxia 35/2, while not technically optimal, can be a pleasing option for the right conditions.

Presented in color and black and white in HD and UltraHD sizes along with large crops, f/2, ..., f/13.

Rather frustrating is the banding (tonal transition) damage done to the image by what is likely the 11+7 bit lossy compression of the Sony A7R, a flawed camera (lossy compression and shutter vibration). I have never had such issues with a Nikon D800E or D810 (14-bit lossless format), even shooting many images similar to this one.
