Hello, Ernie. You say you are just checking on sharpness and focus, and I don't see a problem there. I wonder, though, if this means that you aren't particularly concerned about the essence of the image? The light is behind the bear and although that is fine for definition on the sign, the bear's head is in heavy shadow. I realise that if you had moved to the right in order to get more detail in the head, possibly with the use of flash, the sign would not sit like this and the point of the picture would get lost. Personally, I think I'd have been prepared to sacrifice the sign in order to get a good picture of the front of the bear with that deep blue sky behind it and, if possible, avoiding those electric wires. I have done a modification where I added canvas to the top, cropped, cloned out some of the wires and pushed the shadows up in order to get some light on the head, but found a lot of artefacts developing. This would be better done on the original.

This is rather under exposed due probably to pointing the camera upwards and not checking the LCD for exposure - which was not enough. Not too sure what type of comment you might be after here.
