Shot with the 36-megapixel Nikon D800E at ISO 100. Live View was used for accurate focus on the bicycle frame.

Similar comments apply here as with the White/Green Bike aperture series, but in this case the impression of sharpness appears to be even higher, in part because of lighting conditions.
The bike is of course not in an exact plane, nor is the camera perfectly square to it. Along with mild field curvature and some variation in optical performance across the field, stopping down a few stops can have great benefits— f/2.8 seems to offer an ideal blend of sharpness while retaining an appealing separation via background blur.

Diglloyd DAP is DSLR-oriented, but also contains workflow and other topics. Much of the focus is on Canon and Nikon but also Pentax and Pentax medium format.
Special emphasis is placed on lens evaluation, focusing on Canon and Nikon and Sigma lenses, but with a few others like Rokinon/Samyang.
- Make better images by learning how to get the best results right away.
- Save money by choosing the right lens for your needs the first time, particularly some of the new Sigma Art lenses vs Nikon and Canon.
- Workflow discusses image organization, raw conversion and post processing. Many examples show processing parameters for direct insight into how the image was converted.
- Jaw-dropping image quality found nowhere else utilizing Retina-grade images up to full camera resolution, plus large crops [past 2 years or so].
- Real world examples with insights found nowhere else. Make sharper images just by understanding lens behavior you won’t read about elsewhere.
- Aperture series from wide open through stopped down, showing the full range of lens performance and bokeh.
- Optical quality analysis of field curvature, focus shift, sharpness, flare, distortion, and performance in the field.
