    Many thanks! The 47mm would be even wider. You could probably stand right next to the hedge and get the same content.

    Thanks for confirming. That was stock, and looks a little 'harsher' than ID11. Will XTOL 1+1 add more grain and look flatter?

    Re: post your trees!

    Sorry, the dev time was 7 minutes. The exposure time was 2 minutes (due to being at f22, iso 50, 2-stop CF, and a 1.5 stop polariser).
