With all the detail captured in this composition, I'd like to see it with some added sharpening. Much of the image looks soft.

Thanks Wingman ......I'll keep that in mind ,would it be because the shot was hand held?

I tried to view the Exif info but could not find any. The lack of sharpness could be caused by a number of issues. For. e.g. out of focus, camera shake (slow shutter speed), etc. Do you recall the camera settings such as the aperture and shutter speed? Given the bright lighting, an apperture of f/8 should give you a sharp image with everything in focus as well as a shutter speed that is high enough for the camera to be hand held

You could try to sharpen the image using a photo editor.

Looks like a phenomenal restore job on that Indian.

It's not easy photo-ing something like that in bright light because of the highly reflective surfaces many of which there are.

Besides focus, it does look like significantly more DoF was needed so aperture mode was probably needed (maybe even two stops).
