Hi Charlotte,

It is soft but I just pulled it into photoshop and ran the unsharp mask on it & it looks much better.
Did you sharpen after you resized it ?

Hi Chris,
I didn't knowingly sharpen the image but I'll check my LR and PS settings. Thanks Chris, really appreciate your help.

I don't think it is a camera technique problem, just a resize problem.

In potoshop I usually resize using bicubic-sharper to 1000px wide.
The run smart sharpen to taste - between 40 - 70% is a good start.
