Kev: you are absolutely correct but you are the Exception with your incredible stacked flowers images. Not many (any) around like you. But yes, I was thinking more "normal" shooting.

Why f22? Maximum DOF? Don't know too many situations where f22 would be requied.

You are obviously not a studio still-life/product or macro shooter.

F/22 is commonly used in these situations...IF stacking ,or a T/S lens approach is not used.

Most of my images below were taken using f/22.
