The Stairway of King Carlos

Depth of field. Sometimes you just have to have it to make the image work. When I saw this staircase of King Carlos V palace at the Alhambre in Granada, Spain. I knew this was a depth of field shot. That's where my pocket Lumix LX5 came in perfectly. The smaller, yet pro level new compacts are capable of great focal sharpness from a few inches to infinity when the lens is set properly. I set the lens to f6.3 and placed the camera, hand-held on the base of the rail, focused about 1/3 of the way up and carefully depressed the shutter to get three bracketed shots. I converted the sharpest one to a dramatic black and white in Topaz adjust and was most pleased with the result. Jeff


  1. Another gorgeous image. I love the leading, curing lines of the railing...
