However, once the hyperfocal distance is correctly used (as the OP says he/she does) DoF is effectively infinite behind the focal point....... so DLA becomes the only constraining factor.

hi , can someone explain the theory behind choosing the aperture when shooting big landscapes.
i can understand it when shooting portraits or street stuff, for example, focal depth, to get a faster shutter etc
I seem to be the only one, but I disagree that centered = balanced. I love the lighting and B&W choice and I think the white space adds positively to the minimalism. Personally, I might even add more white space (black) to the right until the guy's head is at the 1/3 length, before I'd choose to crop it in. For me, more white space adds to the dark, immersed feel and would make the photo feel less staged IMO
I agree with the knee brightness seeming a little high, that was the first thing that caught my eye.
Not sure where you got the idea that people say 24-105 is bad, but hopefully you were not expecting 24-70 MKII quality from it, right?
But f/8 ... my copy of the 24-105 is extremely sharp at f/8 and narrower ... but then when you compare to the 24-70 II, sharpness isn't everything.
(This might not give you "professional" arty portraits, but will give properly exposed headshots; however it is so stupid lighting that you may not even think it is worth it)
Adebrophy - hmmm finding a room with a window in a Japanese office might be difficult!
