[Reposted from the ZF/ZE/ZM thread]:
My latest experiment. This is an LF-look-alike image made with 4 rows of 10 vertical shots with the 200/2 VR on a D3. I used the 200/2 to get the narrowest depth of field possible at some distance (curtain of sharpness in front of blur). I have also, at great effort, manually resized and sharpened in Photoshop, so I am interested in comments about that too. Too bad that spring isn't more advanced, to make a more beautiful shot, but I can easily go back, and will.
Anecdotally, the originals aren't all that sharp, so I really need to go back and examine the lens/camera combo and my long lens technique. This is not the first time recently that I have gotten images less sharp than expected (although the portrait worked out well, so at least my 100MP is beyond reproach). I suspect my technique. There is more than enough resolution for such a heavily downsized copy, thankfully.
Oh, I also got my 30" monitor working with my laptop, so I am posting this in 1200 pixel width. I won't do that in general, but I think this shot needs it (at least).
