XT1 - Window Behind the Water Wheel - CC welcome


I know rustic windows and doors get done to death, but this one was different enough to get me to post it. The window was set in the stone wall behind the turning water wheel at the old Bridgewater Mill near Adelaide in South Australia. What seemed like a simple shot wasn't. It was cloudy and showery and the wheel was in the shade of the wall. I didn't have a tripod with me and it became a real contest between shutter speed (to freeze the turning wheel) and DOF (to get the window and the wheel's nearer spoke and axle).

I used the OIS on the 18-55 and I think it rescued it very well. ISO 1600, 1/25 @ f11, WB cloudy, large fine Jpeg SOOC. Maybe I'll get back there with a tripod some time........

CC welcome.

Regards, Rod
