Subject is a bit too far for a decent crop. Also, the grass in the background is a bit tiio distracting for the subject to stand out.

Re. loss in sharpness, I upload to photobucket first and then link to it. Never had a problem with loss of sharpness.

Default loss of sharpness

I was having the same problems and then JimC gave me the explanation below in another thread. Once I started making sure that the file size was small enough to keep the forum s/w from resizing it, the sharpness problem went away. Here are Jim's instrucitons:

You'll see the maximum allowed sizes in the screen that pops up when you browse for photos on your PC to attach and upload.

If you exceed the maximum allowed sizes, then the forums software will still let you upload them. But, it will resize and recompress them (as well as strip out any EXIF data).

If you're sure the dimensions in pixels were within the maximum allowed size (no more than 1024 pixels on the longest side), then you probably exceeded the maximum allowed file size of 253.9KB (260,000 bytes). When saving an image from your editor, usually a jpeg compression quality of around 85% (or 8, depending on software if it's a 1 to 10 or 12 scale), allows the images to stay within the maximum file sizes allowed.
