Jehan, I like it BUT everything would be a bit sharper if you had stopped down to f64

LOL...I was at 24mm and F20 and still could not get enough DOF to get the bridge in focus...you're right though..F64 would have done the trick!

Thanks Steve and ST...I was scrambling to find a WV quarter prior to my visit

ST, I stopped my lens down as much as possible, but the DOF was still insuffucient since I had had to get real close to the quarter to capture the detail. I was using a 12-24mm lens. I suppose I could have tried the telephoto approach and shot from a distance with a smaller aperture...will try next time.
