“Damn, I Would Need a Tilt/Shift for That”

I can’t remember how many times I had to say the above… Until my 24mm TS-E lens arrived, of course. This is a kind of scene that you can’t photograph without such a lens (OK, you can do that with a 2m ladder). The other option would be perspective correction after the fact – losing substantial amount of resolution. But for a stunning 40 x 60 cm print you need the resolution.

Because of the slight overexposure I employed here (to add to the glowing fog feel), there was some cyan CA at high contrast edges along the top 1/5 of the image (the lens was shifted a lot), but nothing that can’t be corrected quickly in post.

I must admit: the TS-E 24 is my favorite landscape lens.
