A bit of an experiment, using a tripod and my longest lens (40-150 mm 'kit' lens), to see how far I could 'see' and still get a reasonably detailed picture. I don't know if this is what I should expect from the lens.
It was a dull, damp, drizzly and windy day. The picture was taken - beneath the + here -
just outside the cemetery which is on a hill. The church spire is almost due west, at the very edge of the screen below the 'H' of High Street. I think it's about a mile (1.6km), as the crow flies.
Johnnyg has a picture of the same church, taken from much closer - here -
I left the camera to choose the ISO, something I don't usually do.
Took the picture in RAW, which is new to me.
I've cropped in to improve the composition because there were too many tree trunks and dark green gorse in the foreground.
I think I might have over-sharpened a bit, but I hope to get that right after a bit of practice using the -CaptureOne4-
software I've just downloaded.
Out of interest, does it work better with a black or a white background?.
