    Heading for the club house

    I took this a few weeks ago and just got around to processing it. Your C&C appreciated.

    I like the idea behind this one. However, I'm feeling (it would have been good to see it posted at a larger size) that all the yachts and the dinghy nearer the front, are not sharp. Focus seems to be on those two poles near the front and everything behind them is slightly out-of-focus.

    I see it was shot at f16, so that should have given you good depth-of-field. Is it just a sharpening issue?

    But the shutter speed was a bit low for a scene with movement. And was it shot handheld or on a tripod?

    Ah ha - Didn't clock the shutter speed, Geoff. I just looked at the aperture setting. But that would explain it, I think.

    Thanks Donald, it is taken at 1/30 which is a bit slow for the moving dinghy. Its hand held at about 100mm but that shouldn't be an issue for the yachts . Here is the the larger version, I recall spot metering further afield than the poles.Heading for the club house

    Over all I like but a quicker shutter speed would have help I feel mainly with the sun and sky being so bright.
