Aperture Series: Yellow Leaves on White Aspen Trunks

The series looks at overall imaging performance from f/2 through f/13. The Zeiss Batis 40mm f/2 CF does an amazingly consistent job all the way into the extreme corners.

These white aspen trunks caught might eye along with the yellow leaves. I processed the image for the high key look with relatively low overall contrast.
