    f/32 @ 1 sec – How do you get everything tack sharp on a windy day like that or does a little motion blur not really matter? Before seeing this I probably would have selected ~f/8 to freeze the wind action a little better and made sure the focus was the top of the highest egg.

      Good question. The eggs don’t move, but on exceedingly windy days, living with a little motion blur is sometimes livable, as long as the main subject holds true focus. Mirror lockup certainly helps. In extreme wind, you would need to bring your aperture back from f/32@ to shoot faster. The beauty of digital is you can see in your viewfinder what the wind is doing and compensate.
