Re: why f2.2 on the 135?

In this case the white bark on the trees in the left make a distracting white spot in the background in the wide open shot. If you stop it down, you see how nice the trees look and the bark compliments the white snow and white dog.

And I'm a guy who shoots wide open 90% of the time. I would have screwed up this shot.
