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
so for example like earlier i was in a farmers field, huge open farmland, but a terrific sunset/moonrise sun/moon off camera but a lovely pink cloudy sky with some interesting pylons, ive got a polariser and a soft graduated filter to help me out balancingthe sky, lets assume i use the correct hyperfocal distance and focus there on 100 iso, im in manual , now if time value isnt an really an issue, whats the best aperture to use? bearing in mind i can change the time value to get a correct exposure.
this always stumps me, and i just guess :S!
