    2nd one looks best.

    What iso were you using? looks a little noisy at the top. Could be fixed in PS though.

    I am under the impression that f/8 will give you the sharpest image across the widest depth.

    Also looks like you could crop the top off too.

    this is the properties of the first shot
    Exposure: 10 sec (10) Aperture: f/22 Focal Length: 18 mm ISO Speed: 100 Exposure Bias: 0/3 EV Flash: Flash did not fire
    i think it is noisy becuase of the aperture

    and the second
    Exposure: 8 sec (8) Aperture: f/11 Focal Length: 18 mm ISO Speed: 400 Exposure Bias: 0/3 EV Flash: Flash did not fire

    Not necessarily. Most lenses' sweet spot is somewhere in around f/8 to f/13 or so, but the "widest depth" will always be at the lowest aperture. (f/90 on LF, anyone?)

    Then there's diffraction...


    *sigh*

    AND OP: The noise is due to long shutter speed (or high ISO, but not in this case), not aperture.

    Did you use a tripod and a remote release?
