This is one of my three favourite hammers, photographed using a flashlight during a long exposure.

This is also the first photo that I've posted that I took with the D800 and 85mm PC-E lens. Taken at f/16, this is actually a bad example of the camera's ability to capture detail, as diffraction has considerably reduced the peak sharpness. I'd still consider it 'good enough' and will have no hesitation in using this combination when I need large prints.

I have broken the links to hundreds and hundreds of photos, which will take a long time to repair. The workaround is to replace "photo.matthewpiers" in the link URL with "matthewpiers.smugmug". Awkward, but only temporary.

This is happening because I have revamped matthewpiers dot com. More of what I write and photograph will be going there, so check it out as well.
