    Mike, another fantastic set. I was in the area (Bowness, Windermere, Ullswater, Shap, etc.) in summer of 2016. It looks best in autumn/winter, although Summer is nice too!

    I see you are shooting almost everything at f9. Are you using hyperfocal focus distance on the 16-70 lens?

    Thanks Peter
    I have to be the laziest photographer out there!!
    I find a setting that I like and stick with it.
    I find f9 on the 16-70 gives me a good DOF & IQ
    I occasionally use hyperfocal focus or if I cant get everything sharp from front to back, rather than using a smaller aperture, I'll focus stack
    I always bracket, +1, 0, -1 to hopefully give me a complete range of exposures.
    If not, I tweak exposure compensation either way to either open up shadows or darken highlights.

    Hope this helps ;)
    Mike

    Mike,

    Thanks! As it turns out the 16-70 does indeed have maximum DoF at f9; after that (according to my App.) diffraction starts to set in.

    Keep up the excellent work!

    I believe that someone already used the phrase "stunning" but I cannot find an alternate to use myself...Stunning pix.
