Default Need F70EXR help and/or advice

hi guys and gals,

i need some advice on why this shot did not work.

my F70EXR was set up like this:
Program P-->AE
ISO Auto 1600
DR400
Velvia/Vivid
WB--> Auto
Photometry-->Multi
Auto Focus-->Center
Macro

*digital zoom off
Name:  red leave help.jpg
Views: 340
Size:  160.3 KB
1/420s, f5.3, ISO 100, M, DR400

i can't figure out why the leaf is unfocused and most everything around it is
focused.

thanks!
mary

sometimes you need to change the length of the leaf to the lens so the auto focus detect object in question.

Cresho is correct-

The camera did not focus where you desired the focus. In cases like this, you will either have to use spot focus control or change the orientation.

We hope that you have enjoyed a great weekend.

yea, as other say, you just missed the focus.

you can always do a focus and recompose. just point the middle box at the leaf, half press to get focus, keep the half-press held and recompose to your likings.

the lense length to the object, sometimes you need to go forward or backwards so the optics can detect it. If your too close,it will not focus on object.
