I have no idea what a runnel is but I I think I saw Murph and Kylie refer to these sand patterns as runnels.
Taken at sunrise this morning at one of Murphs favourite haunts. Lazy bugger, it’s about 20 seconds from his driveway – and that’s driving slowly LOL.
Not an original shot but i really liked the colour & patterns.
My reason for posting though is to show how good this lens appears to be, even inspite of my sometimes haphazard technique, and the soft sinky sand.
Straight into the sun with very minimal flare. I am sure any flare present (yes there is a little in front of the rocks) comes from my filters and not from the lens.
I had 3 filters on, a B&W polariser, a 2 stop ND Lee grad and a 3 stop ND Singh-Ray reverse grad.
After the shoot I noticed that the reverse grad had vertical cleaning smears and the polariser had some dust specs.
Looks to me like this TS-E 24mm F/3.5L ii might even rival the legendary Zeiss 21mm for clarity and sharpness.
This is taken at F/16, should be even better at F/11 & F/8.
I can see how it won the shootout for Canons’ sharpest 24mm lens that I saw on another site.
TS-E 24mm F3.5Lii
No tilt or shift applied.
