Sony A7S II + Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 Distagon Aperture Series: Beaver Pond View Through Dual Aspen to Snow on High Peaks
This aperture series from f/2 - f/13 is a dual purpose presentation designed to show off the high dynamic range of the Sony A7S II (uncompressed raw) as well as the outstanding brilliance of the Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 Distagon.
Major contrast control was used to open up deeply shadowed areas even as brilliant white clouds presented an exposure challenge. A perfect ETTR exposure was made which exploited the full 14-bit dynamic range of the A7S II.
Entire frame at various sizes up to actual pixels presented from f/2 - f/13 in both color and black and white. Includes ACR settings and RawDigger histogram.
