I found the image to be a bit flat, so I ran it through levels to correct it. In the mod I have cropped out the extra bit of cliff and I have removed the bit of rock from close to the small cap in the cliff.
I hope this helps.

This is an extremely blurred looking image Stan - very soft. Your speed setting looks good, and its completely out of step with your images, - you certainly know how to use your camera, so Im wondering whats wrong.


I will sharpen in a mod, but I dont think it will make a load of difference. Does your original look better than it does on here Stan? That may give me a clue.


Loaded mod, - no amount of sharpening can improve this, - I have to assume the camera wasnt properly focused on the cliff when the shot was taken.

The main fault is the unsdharpness, which is considerable. Shake I think, even at the speed you used. The image also needs some brightness and contrast. If you didn't use a tripod, you needed to, then the flatness could be corrected in software.

Sharpening only works well with lens blur - it is difficult for sharpening to deal adequatly with shake.

I have to agree with Paul having tried to remove motion blur, - its most likely shake.
