    Woke up this morning and lo and behold a tulip had appeared right
    beside the front porch.
    Good chance to test out the Canon 24mm tilt-shift with the 20D.

    That is a really nice photo, but what properties of the tilt-shift 24mm
    rather than the standard 24 mm does that show?

    Getting the entire flower in focus was the main goal. It's hard to
    tell from that pic, but the flower is probably 3 inches deep, so
    keeping focus on the flower while still having a bit of blur in the
    background was the test. The wind didn't help either. I need a plamp.

    Not a bad first effort with this lens, especially since I really don't
    know what I'm doing yet. I understand the premise behind the shifts
    and tilts, but implementing them has thus far proved difficult. But
    it's only Day 1.

    Manual focus on the 20D is tough due to the tiny viewfinder.
    Fortunately, I have an attachment that magnifies the viewfinder image
    up to 2x. But then I've got to focus it as well. Now I have a taste
    for what those Large Format shooters go through.

    How about a couple of shots that show the true merits of that lens? Some
    architecture, a landscape shot with mega depth of field...

    I read the other reply about the flower being deep, but I want more. Yes,
