    Crabbe,

    Overall, a nice image, a nice transition of colors near the top of the tree, however there does appear to be some focusing issues the further you move up the tree. What f/stop did you use?

    Crabbe,

    I see it now, it looks like you used an aperture of f/2.8 that's probably why there is a loss of focus.

    1\320 sec. at f4. It takes VERY careful looking to see it, but you're right, it's there - or not there in focus. Thanks

    it looks to me like severe JPEG compression rather than focus error. i think it compresses dark areas more than the midtones. looking at the full image i see much artifacts at contrast points too. a quality setting of 5 or 6 may have been used, correct?

    definitely a photography no-no

    It's a nice shot, and I like the colours. Your camera is always going to struggle to get decent image quality due to it's configuration. It has quite a small sensor, and has a pixel density of 29MP cm2, which is extremely high. That may account for some of the comments above. Have you thought about getting an entry-level DSLR?

    EDIT: Sorry, that doesn't sound too good. What I meant was it's a good camera to get started with and to improve, but you will get better results with even an entry-level DSLR. I still have my Fuji bridge camera - it takes pretty good shots, but not as good as my DSLRs
