Well shot. Is you home open to show all the models cars all week or weekends only?

Ive got over 120 models. Id like to put them out on a well paved road in two parallel rows and run a GoPro through them. But carrying that many cars just isnt practical.

That is a lot of model cars and a lot of dusting also to keep them all looking so good.

A very large image to be a tinypic

D7000 and Sigma 10-20mm shot @ f18

Reading around I found the sweet spot of this lens is around f8

However a nice shot overall. I envy your collection of of ornaments

Musket, to shoot diecast a very small aperture is needed to give the greatest depth of field. Normally I shoot at f8 if I can, and I didnt know it was the sweet spot. But for these small autos f22 is minimum and I go to as much as f32 I believe. In this case the pumper is very close to the fence so a great depth of field isnt necessary, but when shooting so close even a foot in focus requires a small aperture.
