I took my Canon T1i out with my tripod and took a few pics. Even though they were on a Tripod, the results were still kind of blurry and not incredibly sharp. Possibly due to slow shutter speed and passing traffic?. Though the best I took was the following

Here is the shot, how can I make it better?

not too sure , the only thing you could really do is add more detail to the brickwork and floor

did you use a remote release or a long delay? If it is a short delay. You did not give the camera enough time to settle down after you press the shutter. That is part of the problem in you other thread with the 2 second delay.

PS did you have the IS turn off when using the tripod?

Also when shooting longer exposure. If your tripod have adjustable feet make sure it is complete set on the rubber shoe if you can adjust it to use the metal pin or rubber shoe.

If your tripod does not have rubber shoes. get 3 tennis ball, cut a notch in it. and push you tripod feet into them. This will give you more vibration insolation from traffic vibration.

This could also be a DOF or focusing issue. It is hard to tell on a low quality JPEG.

Here is a full res version http://imgur.com/dGNpH.jpg


I don't really know how to do a longer release than the normal 2 seconds. I don't have a remote release yet, but may get one.

I had Image Stabilisation on.
