I mean larger the number. If I could shoot on f22, I would because I could then get everything from the farthest peak to the for ground ballast in focus. When I think about shooting a "scene", I think of the "big picture" which equals a big f stop for me. I can't shoot on f22 because my camera body just isn't *that* good. But yeah the bigger the f stop, the smaller the hole, and the more that is in focus.
