Better I think. Its still looking soft here. Does your original look quite a bit sharper?

If it does, check how you are re-sizing. After you re-size, open the new image and check for sharpness, adjusting as necessary, and then upload.

There is also a new method available you might try, - you can do it now as a variant to this; edit, add variant, then select the large, sharp original, NOT the resized version; click OK. EPZ will re size it, and it will be a V2 for comparison. The site has improved its loading ad sizing processes, so give it a try.

You used Auto Bracket for the exposures; how far apart were the exposures, one stop, 1/3, 2/3, etc

I will check back later.

When I downloaded for a closer look, I noticed that its mostly in the centre that its very soft, and then its less soft as you cme closer to the camera.

So this suggests to me a point of focus issue that you might need to check out.

So, first thing, - are you selecting a SINGLE focus point, and not allowing the camera to use all those multiple points that are the default? if you are using multiple points, this can cause issues like this.

IF you are using a single focus point, where in the frame are you focusing?

You HAVE TO manually focus for multiple shots ( perhaps not in auto bracket, but definitely otherwise).

I will check back

You are probably right, its a long time since I took these shots and probably did'n't use spot focus.
I use the Fred Miranda plugin to resize to 1400by1050 and is usually really good although it doesn't work on 64 bit.
Will have a bit more time tomorrow so will spend some time on it and see if I can get it right, (just on my way out at the moment)
Thanks for all your help, and I will get back to you if I need any more, if that's OK

Thanks, no problem.
