Sharp lens, blurry photo.
Having recently added a Canon 70-200 f/4L IS lens to my camera bag, I needed to go out as soon as I could to test it. Reported to be one of, if not the, sharpest zoom lens Canon has ever made, you might think I’d be out shooting trying to see just how sharp it really is. You’d only be partly right.
While I did come away with a good hand-held shot of a favorite wildflower, the purple trillium…
…my favorite photo of the day is this abstract reflection titled “Water Colors.”
Sometimes you want it sharp, sometimes you don’t.
Sharpness does not make a photograph, there is so much more. And in the case of “Water Colors,” capturing a tack sharp image was the furthest thing from my mind.
