You probably realize that a small aperture will provide you with the most depth-of-field, but stopping ALL the way down to your smallest aperture (usually the largest number, i.e., f/22, etc.) is not always a good idea. Many lenses offer a more appealing image at one stop shy of their smallest aperture. This is because of lack of contrast or flare at the smallest aperture.
