Focus problems

leave a comment »

It seems I am destined to be plagued by focus issues. This morning I awoke at 6:30 to see the most amazing sunrise from my window and not wanting to waste the opportunity I grabbed the camera. I stuck it on the tripod in the hope of achieving focus, the image below is one of the resulting shots.


At this resolution I really like it. I’ve done no post-processing on this image other than a quick crop. Problems emerge when we zoom in. Below is a 100% crop of the image.



This problem has plagued me with all landscape shots so far. I don’t think it can be equipment because the “normal” focal distance shots I take come out pin sharp. It has annoyed me this morning as these images would have been stunning in focus. Something to learn.
