Ray, stopping down as you've done when using the tripod yields incredible depth of field and excellent sharpness. These images with wide lenses, the 24 ad 35, are really quite brilliant. I see the advantage. I tend to shoot at f/8 when doing landscape work not so much because of shutter speed but in the belief that is a sweet spot for sharpness. Clearly, one can't generalize about these lenses so experimenting with stopping down further, which becomes possible with a tripod, is a worthy thing to do. And, of course, some shots can only be done with a tripod. I'm thinking about shooting moving water at a shutter speed the captures the sense of flow. Keep em coming. I may yet be motivated to buy a tripod...
