Very eye pleasing composition of elements, grassy riverbanks, rocks, the cosswise fall etc.including the reflections as well...The image looks to have sufferedfrom jpeg compressionor sth though!

Yes, I hadn't noticed that before. I have no idea what caused it. You obviously have a very keen eye. I think I may start using raw format and see if that helps.

It could just be the resizing for display. I finda little sharpening or USM is often necessary to retain the apparent sharpness of an original, depending on the particular shot and the resizing algorithm used. Some shots require more than others, regardless of the sharpness of the original.

This is the default 'sharpen' in PSP7 applied to Baz's posted shot, which is a bit better to my eye. It would have been better to start with a bigger original.

Hope you don't mind, Baz. I'd be surprised if starting with 'Raw' would make much difference to the sharpness, unless the resizing was done in-camera.

Also when resizing jpegs I would recommend doing it in steps and not all at once. It works better for how jpegs algorithm cuts information when downsizing. For example I resize my jpegs 300 pixels at a time. Very fast as I just use an action that does it automatically. That being said I like how the calm reflections turn into little white bubbling rapids.

Its a very nice shot, but got to agree with Alan, and bahadir, first of all I thought it was the dof, then thought it could be the resizing.
