From an outing today. A couple of other photographers and I went to photograph an old homestead this morning. When we got there, we found that it was gone. The buildings had been destroyed and burned. There were lots of remnants - tubs, bed frame, some beams, wire, pipes, etc. Inside of a metal box on the remains of what appeared to be farm equipment were these wasp nests.
I took a few shots at f/5.6, f/13, and f/18. The shots at f/18 were not as sharp - apparently, diffraction was kicking in. I liked both the f/5.6 and f/13 shots, but ended up liking the shallow DOF a little better. I know that a lot of people would prefer the f/13 with greater DOF, but I prefer the slightly greater depth perception with the shallower DOF.
