Re: Iceland Shots from Yesterday - Eastfjords Gravel Route 953 to Mjorfjordur

Using the last shot in this post as an example, I see from the exif that you shot at f/8.

There isn't enough DOF for the foreground rocks at the bottom of the frame to be perfectly sharp.

According to a standard online DOF calculator using CoC of 0.05 based on Pentax 645D, the hyperfocal distance should be 17 feet and the nearest acceptable focus would be 8 1/2 feet. What counts as acceptable focus is subjective but for me the foreground is nowhere near acceptably sharp. Is it closer than 8 1/2 feet? It looks like it might be to me. The main section of grass beyond the rocks is better.

Where did you place your focus point?

EDIT: I should say that the foreground is not acceptable sharp at 1:1. Viewed at approximately 20" wide, it looks sharp to me.
