This set shows that for this type of landscapes the focal length of 75mm (50mm FF) is to narrow. It acts more like a short telephoto lens. This was OK for yesterday’s photo set of Mount Diablo. Guess that is the whole point of this month’s exercise.
All photos were taken with my Sony SLT α77 and Minolta AF 50mm F/1.7 lens, using Aperture mode, with a setting of f/11, White Balance set to cloudy, ISO to 400 and 3-shot bracketing with +/- 0.5 EV. No post-process adjustments were made to the photos.
