I know that chapter 7 will be as great as 1 thru 6.
Thanks for posting your work, it inspires us all.

I am impressed by the DOF of the last picture.

So was I! Instead of using my Nikon, I used a small sensor superzoom Canon, with the zoom on its widest angle. It can only stop down to f/8 but still gives great depth of field. I'll shoot more with that camera...

I know I could achieve stunning, super crisp images with the Nikon and a stack of photos combined in Helicon Focus, but it would take soooo much time and effort. I'll do that here and there for the final shots when the layout is done, but not for the day-to-day stuff!

Here's another example of the depth of focus this camera provides:

Cool picture, but I don't understand the DOF problem with the Nikon. Mine, depending on the lens goes till F36, with great DOF and almost nothing to be edited..

Martin, it is all about the sensor size and the focal length... I have a FX Nikon (full frame), with a very large sensor. My wideangle is 24 mm. Even at f/22 I have restricted DOF compared to the small sensor Canon, where the comparable wideangle focal length is just 4.3 mm, with enormous DOF.

I'll shoot a comparison tonight with both cameras at the same spot...

As promised, a depth of field test. The Canon SX50HS at f/8 at 4.3mm vs. the Nikon D800 at f/22 at 24mm. The Nikon zoom lens is being punished a little by diffraction when stopped down that much.

I'm very, very impressed how well the little Canon manages for this kind of shots, reduced to 1000 pixels wide... It can never, ever compete at normal shooting at full resolution, where the ultra sharp 36 megapixels Nikon delivers very fine quality, and with much higher dynamic range. But of course also at a much higher price.

Great comparisons! I still use my little Lumix for exactly the same reason instead of the micro 4/3rds Olympus around the models. Outside, the Lumix definitely falls over in resolution and image quality.

BTW - what happened to the couple in shed 3?

A few days ago I was up on a stool to fix some lighting wiring, and saw this seagull level view... The area represents half the layout depth at this place. The little, cozy shopping street in Convers runs along the backdrop.

I haven't forgotten the Coast Line again... just busy:)
