Here are two examples from yesterday of a technique that benefits from increased depth of field, and one that I'm desperately trying to improve - panning.

1. 43mm, f/14, 1/25"

2. 70mm, f/13, 1/60"

These are obviously practice shots. For much better examples of panning technique on faster and more unique motorized subjects, take a look at some of the work by @ijm5012 - it is quite excellent.
Nice practice shots. I usually am closer to 1/125", based on the speed of the vehicle. It takes lots of practice for sure!

I'm planning on doing that at a driving school tomorrow, but that may be userped by my daughter's pregnancy...news just now that she may be close to going into labor (small dilation and blood pressure increasing).

I’m sure that welcoming a grandchild into the world is better than practicing panning!

Stopping down (and VR) gets me slow ss and the elusive prop blur.

Taken with the Olympus E-M1 II with the 12-100mm F/4. This combo is ridiculous with the 5-axis IBIS and on lens IS on = dual IS. Both were hand held. I took another one with a full second exposure and it's just as sharp.

I am curious, would the Z6 or Z7 with a VR lens be able to do the same?

Open up to F/16 to get all the flowers in focus

I love the first one. That Olympus does an amazing job!! I'll try in good light and see how long I can handhold with my Z6. I've heard of people who can do 1 second, but I'm not that steady, so I doubt if I can.

The micro 4/3 sensor is an excellent choice for increasing depth of field. And you’ve truly doubled down by going all the way to f/32 FF equivalent. I now feel a little regret over selling my 12-100 last week. But back to your images: Nicely done.

Didn't realize we had any temps that low anymore.
