Default A nice day at the Brooklyn Promenade

The long line form the first one is people waiting to get ice cream at a local ice cream palor. Crazy right waiting on such a line just to have a taste of Brooklyn ice cream.

People will do anything for ice cream.... guessing you didn't get one thought LOL.

It seems that there is something up with camera settings or PP or both. The photos are very soft and looking really washed out, I couldn't work out anything as the exif isn't there.

I goof up on the aperture setting, has it a 4.5 with the kit lens, it was a bit soft. I should have stop down to f8 to get it sharper.

i think part of the problem is your files were larger than 250kb, and then steve's forum is downsizing your photos to a small 110-120kb, which is compressing the heck out of them and causing them to be too soft.

I was worried it was from the short drop form yesterday. I sent canon an email that I was thinking I should send it in for servicing. Does the airplane spotting look sharp?

i think it was a compression problem. as you can see when i resized it and compressed below 250kb, it looks much sharper.

Thanks Hards, Glad to know it was not the camera. I will try the work flow you suggested next time.
