A journey to private Island to calm my head and heart ... 1200 ha Island at the middle of the ocean ... perfect weather, so easy to took a good picture, the sharpest aperture on my lenses, I hope the infinity focus on it took good all detail

Interesting that your calming holiday led to a quite restless and active picture!

I've done a mod, cropping a bit, and making it a vertical composition, as wel las raising the contrast - even more restless...

I think, at 55mm, that f/7.1 won't be the optimum aperture - it could well be so at 18mm, when the maximum aperture is f/3.5, but I'd guess that f/11 is closer at the focal length you used. Nikon users may be able to confirm this...

That lens appears, according to Photozone.de who test lenses, to be sharped overall at f/8 at 55mm, though f/11 is very close, and 7.1 should be fine. PHOTOZONE

I assume this is a bridge shot from very high, - will load a mod shortly. Its not so easy to tell what it is from this point of view!

A shot like this, with a long vertical line, would be best shot in portrait orientation, and have the ends of the bridge at the bottom left and top right corners, forming a diagonal

I'd love to know where you were to take this, and the practicalities are quite important so please tell us! My mind immediately went to a hot air balloon ride...

John and Willie have done what I wanted, cropped to vertical. In the upload there is a lot of emptiness on either side, it dilutes the effect of the jetty which is leading our eyes upwards.

That's certainly an interesting viewpoint, and now that Moira's mentioned hot air balloons, I'm also wondering Smile

It's beautifully empty of people. I like that. Probably because I'm not really a people-person and prefer to see landscapes and images of this kind without any human presence at all.

Having said that, sometimes (just sometimes, mind Smile) a person in a shot like this can add that all important sense of scale, that allows the viewer to relate to the scene in front of their eyes and, possibly, project themselves into the same scene for a moment or two.

I honestly can't decide whether a person in this case, walking somewhere along that long jetty, would work or not. I'm not going to have a go a putting one in, just for the sake of it, but it's something to maybe think about next time?

I hope your heart and your head were calmed by being here - it's looks rather idyllic.

Thank you very much my friend, yes, need a little bit rest from all the routine, peak point reached Smile, and thank you for the beautiful modification as always, what you tell me could be right, after practicing, measuring and trying, I stick with the 7.1 for all the focal length, it's most safest and sharpest compare to another aperture and that will be my aperture on 18-55 vrII for landscape and 4 on my fixed lenses

Ah, Thank you very much my friend, precious information, I tried and already compared it too, but my conclusion stick to 7.1 for landscape based to the result I've shot in field, and Thank you very much for the information, not too high is about 120 m from sea surface Smile

This picture was taken before the plane landing, and yes thank you for the modification, and I agree, so many fish are swimming and birds flying, but the bird didn't in to frame at right time and the fish not to visible even the small shark so it's looks empty Smile

Thank you very much Tanya already answered in Moira Question, yes, very,very, less people, 1200 ha island at middle of the Ocean, quite far from big island 1,5 hour by plane from java Island, only guarded by one person and I guess he already walking from the home to that long jetty, and 2 more people on the plane.

I really love this spot and this before landing view, so I took it Smile, no much pic taken, because that's not main goal and thank you I did enjoy the time for being there Smile
