Aperture Series: Last Warm Glow On Creek (S006)

This series shot in high-altitude mountain shade just before sunset, with the glow from the still-sunlit peaks reflecting off the water of the creek.

Taken at medium range, it gives a good look at sharpness across the field, and the mild field curvature happens to work out well for the scene. However, this series is more about the rendering style and feel of the image than a sharpness assessment.

Last Warm Glow On Creek

Adobe Camera Camera Raw 9.1 (441). ACR settings. Camera Profile = Embedded. No lens corrections were used.

The camera front-focused as per its usual tantrums, throwing focus well forward of the intended zone of focus. But it still works out OK with stopping down and it gives us a look at OOF behavior too.
