i like the idea and the setup on this shot.. it is a good composition! and i think that you achieved your goal here!

but its a little soft.. be careful of your shutter speeds and make sure they are at least 1/focal length..

Thanks Dustin for you always honest and helpful comments. I must confess, it seems to me that my photos tend to begenerally soft. The surprising thing is that even those I take using a tripod are still soft. I remember you advicing me quite on this one. I don't know where I tend to go wrong.

Please do explain to meabout focal lenght. For instance when the focal lenght of the lens is 70mm I should use a shutter speed of 80 or generally something above the maximum focal lenght of the lens?

Thank you.

basically, so if you are shooting at 60mm on your camera.. then you need to shoot at or above 1/60 for a shutter speed...

have you been post-processing your shots.. learning to use unsharp mask will be a big improvement in sharpness..

keep shooting and practicing!! thats the only way to improve!!

Dustin has it right on this one. The composition and subject are wonderful. It's worth doing more similar ones (if possible) to work on the exposure problems. This idea is definitely worth getting right.

Just a thought, but is all your shots are soft, perhaps you have a sharp/soft setting on whatever camera you have turned way down. If you dont have one, or its neutral, then I would use photoshop over turning it up in the camera then. Nice shot......

Thanks VAtechtigger for the encouragement,

My camera is a 350D Canon. I will try and look carefully and see if any of the buttons are turned the wrong side. I do not have photoshop, I have photostudio which was supplied with the camera. Do you think investing in photoshop would be a good solution?

Kind regards
