Do you have any tips for getting it sharper? The angle didn't allow me to use a tripod so I was forced to squat near the bench and play with the zoom in my P850 (12 times zoom) until I got it even that sharp.

if need be it... step back... close the aperture down a tad and then crop what you dont want out... what was the exif info? and how far from the bench were you?

I am not sure how to get the exif info... it was set to Auto at the time and I was around 2 feet from the bench.

Ok did a quick edit. Added some contrast and fixed the levels up a bit. Also sharped it up as much as I could without hopefully overdoing it. The weird thing was that you had blurry outer border and the nail itself was blurry but between wasn't that bad. Not sure how you managed that. Slightly lower apeture would have been better I think for this shot maybe 1stop.

Hope you don't mind the edit. Tis all yours now.

Logan, I was zoomed all the way in with my optical, no digital however.

And Ollie, I appreciate the edit, I love the way it looks a bit darker with more depth in your version. If you don't mind telling me, what program did you use for that edit?

if you were zoomed in all the way and were only two feet from the bench then there wasnt anough space between you and the bench to get focus... even if you were in macro mode... step back a little next time...

Logan
