this is a lovely shot, nicely composed and exposed, lovely latered colours. I think it could be sharpened a little bit

Thank you both for the nice comments.'
Yes, Stephen I agree. It seems to have lost some of the sharpness in the downsizing before download. Still trying to find the best way to downsize a picture so not to lose to much of it's qualities. Justine

Hi Michi,

it's a common problem with this site. When you change to a smaller jpeg you always lose some sharpness anda bit of contrast. My trick is to downsize to jpeg at a quality that gives roughly the correct file size needed, then do a further but more subtle tweak of contrast (if needed) and then sharpness, and save again to JPEG. You can affors to keep the quality of this save quite high so your final file size still says around the same. This ususally makes the difference

Hope that makes sense - good luck
