    Yeah, but the shadows shifted more than I expected and the clouds much less. I think it was 1 minute exposure at 5 minute intervals for the colors and then 15 seconds for the one without a filter...

    Maybe at 4x or 5x, but if you can't distinguish the difference between f22 and f45 at a 10x enlargement then there is something wrong with your system.

    Also, f32 is a perfectly appropriate aperture for a 90mm lens with a good deal of rise. You could probably get away with f22 but f11 would really be pushing it in terms of aberrations in the corners...
