Nah, I don’t take it as being harsh my skin is thicker than that Chg_canon I’ve read enough of your posts so I know you know what you are talking about.
What f stop would would you use?
I understand ISO is high and could be lower.
What I find interesting is that in the past I’ve had great results. I think I may have watched too many You Tube videos and messed with my settings.
Tomorrow morning same time same place I’ll take more shots.
I probably would have been less harsh, if I could go back and edit, and maybe if the post included another brand compared to a phone ...
The points I could have made with less harshness:
1. Consider this view, is f/4 the best aperture to either a, blow out the background, or b, to capture a better depth of field of sharpness? The lens aperture couldn't get wider, and we end up with an ugly tree in the background that is neither softly out of focus nor in sharp focus. More depth of field in-focus would seem to be a better composition.
2. Consider this view, how fast do you need to shoot to account for any breeze / movement of the tree and bush in the foreground?
3. Consider this view, where should you place your focus to achieve sharp details? Or, where is the subject of this image? Where will / should the viewer's eyes naturally fall?
4. Given both the camera and lens are IS-enabled, how slow can you shoot at 50mm without worrying about camera shake while handholding, while also avoiding any subject movement?
5. Given the lens, what is the sharpest maximum aperture, either learned from online lens testing reviews or your own personal experience?
All the questions / considerations above are what can (will) make an interchangeable lens camera better than a phone. When I say something like "when you become one with your camera, the magic begins", I mean that all these questions are asked and answered in your mind in an instant
as you view and frame any and all subjects in your viewfinder.
BTW - the ISO is a red herring in all this discussion. Although you should bias your exposure decisions toward the lowest ISO possible, there's nothing in this EOS R6 example that is 'wrong' from ISO-1250. It's just an outcome of being unnecessarily fast on the shutter.
