Not like the previous uploads from the Toronto Zoo this was not captured though GLASS. As it an ELEPHANT which I need to wait till she had STRAW started to eat her lunch.

In Camera-in-the-RAW I straighten the tree and then opened in Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 where resized to 600 x 401 and then applied some UNSHARP MASK and then saved as JPEG for upload for this site.

This appears to be over processed quite a lot Timothy. Perhaps something not quite right with the re sizing process?

It should be like this: Open full size image. Straighten as needed. Image>size>set longest side to 600 pixels; save as new file name at MAXIMUM quality; open saved image; asses sharpness and adjust as needed' save and upload.
