Blurry?
 
I just got this rejection. http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=119422

Doesn't look blurry to me. :confused:

Needs a touch of Unsharpen Mask (USM). Look to the number boards for an idea.

It does seem a bit soft to me. It could easliy be corrected with a bit of sharpening. There's a program you can download for free called neat image that is great at touching up soft, slightly out of focus, or grainy shots.
www.neatimage.com if you want to check it out.
It's a very nicely composed shot, and with a little bit of touch up it should be accepted no problem.

I have this happen to me . . . the time between the focus lock and the picture being taken is enough with fast moving trains or slow shots that you get out of the 'sharp' zone some.

I tried two more times:

Blurry (again)

Too much grain

Chalk this one up to camera movement blur. If the pic is soft, there is a good chance you can sharpen it enough. But if the shutter speed allows for a blurry picture, you can't fix that on the computer.

The more you sharpen, the grainier it will get.

I agree with the "camera shook" diagnosis. Might look OK on a 4x6 print, but it's too visible here. If you're racked out that far on the tele, you gotta have shutter speed north of 1/500th or otherwise have a rock solid support.
