Default Is this tack sharp?

Is this tack sharp? Seems so, but just wanted everyone's opinion.

Thanks.

I disagree agree with Troy. It's definitely sharper then [sic] tact sharp.

Sharper than tact sharp? Is that possible?

Is it like ludicrous speed is faster than light speed?

Here, I will state what Charles is thinking:

"Not a tack."

If it is tacks they want, I shall photograph finishing nails and perhaps brads of all shapes and sizes!

Used hypodermic needle sharp - still sharper than your average tack.

How about this - is the subject tack sharp? Looks to be, though the umbrella seems to have moved during the exposure.

Interesting EXIF:

ApertureFNumber f/4.5
ExposureTime 1/80
ISOSpeedRatings 1250
Flash 16
FocalLength 116/1

Was it really that dark, ya think?
Maybe Jean-Marc left his neutral density filter on - I don't get it?

Mitch - Based on my images of monorails and such, HG feels that it's only a matter of time until I try to submit a photo of a moving sidewalk at the airport.

Nothing really, but it is going on in two different forums and on FB.

Yes, that is true because it seems to fit "your" definition as to what a train is.

Particularly the part of carrying passengers and operating on a fixed track, or guide.

WRONG (doing my best John McLaughlin)... that is my definition of a rail vehicle. A train is simple a string of multiple items strung together.

But, no, I don't see a moving sidewalk as a rail vehicle as there is no "vehicle."

Well, I don't know too much about the construction of a moving sidewalk, but an escalator most certainly has vehicles riding on rails, as the individual steps have wheels that ride on rails.

GET ON IT! This is your niche! You can become the greatest escalator photographer the world has ever seen or ever will see!!!

Elevators would be a more controversial or marginal form of trains, as the vehicle is constrained by rails but the rails do not bear the weight of the vehicle. I'd strongly advice you not go there.

I am thinking of adding to my definition to eliminate anything that has a handrail that moves with the "vehicle."

Bummer, that eliminates all subway shots, as they have any number of handrails that move with the vehicle because they are affixed to said vehicle. Come to think of it, you are eliminating any vehicle that has a grabiron too!

Frankly, I'm not sure there is anything left in transportation for you to photograph! Well, there's always your imaginary friend. Oops!

Looks pretty bleak for you, Charles.

So by your definition, Barbara Bush has some "trains" around her neck?

Let's say, handrails that are separate from the other vehicle and yet move at the same rate as that vehicle.
