I took this following the shot of the condominiums.

The image is a combination of 4 shots, organized in a 2×2 matrix, cut into a 4×5 crop. The dimensions are 13123×16403 pixels at 116 MB

The key learning from this shot was related to depth of field. This one, taken at f/22 appears to be in focus across the visible plane. While the lens is able to shoot at f/64, by that point diffraction sets in, introducing some softness. Having said that, there seems to be some softness, but I suspect that is inherent in the lens itself, having been design in a pre-digital age (or that’s what so many others say).
