There's softness in this picture I can't put my finger on. Camera movement? soft focus?

I shot almost into the sun, Minolta 7D, 1/125, F7.1, ISO 100, Multiseg metering, Adobe RGB. What do you think? Camera movement?

Thanks,

Bill

Camera shake? Dunno. At what focal lenght was it shot? If it was anywhere in the neighborhood of 120mm (or less) it probably wasn't camera shake -- unless you are especially prone to unsteadiness while holding a camera.

It could be just general haze. The shadows of the trees in the background look like something does when atmospheric haze is present.

Whatever caused the softness, though, I think that the picture benefits from it.

Max for my lens, 100mm.

I agree, the softness adds to the picture. And yes, it was hazey. Later afternoon, shooting West, down towards even more haze.

The sun was on my left shoulder. In this next shot, the sun is on my right shoulder. In fact, I just turned around and shot the other side of the road.

What a difference lighting makes....

Both very nice indeed. I suspect the softness is just haze, combined with the soft light at sunset. Actually the softness works very well.

Nice one!

John.
