I did stop down for one photo (not posted) and the foreground leaves were 
swamped by the equally sharp background of the tree. So I tried one or two 
wide open. I got a few leaves in focus in the foreground but some out. I 
agree, frustrating. As I said, not trying for printable photos to hang, just 
seeing what the camera would do.
