    This Old Man has seen it all

    This is a tree I pass every day. It is basically at the end of its life it doesn't change with the seasons. It just stands alone in a field.

    Diane nice image that said the tree as your centre of focus needs to be a lot sharper, either by correct focus or stop down the f-stop couple more stops.

    Hi Diane,

    While the second is a little sharper, I am wondering what I am seeing here.

    At this image size, I can't work out for sure, but the odd bits are the significant branch thickness and tone variations - now this may well be natural; i.e. the tree has lost (dark, thick) bark and is showing the (lighter) wood core, but at this size+resolution it could be mistaken for capture/creative sharpening applied with too high a threshold (and also possibly too wide a radius).

    You could reprocess and upload to TinyPic at exactly twice this size (e.g. 1400 x 964px) so we could see clearer and it would still fit most screens - but that's optional

    Was it a RAW or jpg capture? If jpg, you're options are very limited.

    Cheers,

    OK trying larger size. Went back to RAW file and started again. I'm having trouble with Camera RAW from Adobe I can't get it to work on either of my computers. I used the basic Nikon software I got with my camera and I shot both RAW and JPEG.

    Thanks

    Diane what type of camera did you use to shoot this with?? I really love the idea of this photo, I think it could be a really special photo with the lone tree and the barn in the background it has a great mood to it. Just wondering about hte camera because I have the same problem with getting my images really crisp and clear.
