Thank You, Yes your absolutely right. I use Canon's free software DPP only. I knocked the Sharpness down to 0 and replaced the photo's to see what you think but they still look sharp. I will need to check my in-camera settings and re-adjust the settings.

I like this one better, but now it could use just a tiny bit of sharpening.
The free Adobe Photoshop 9.0.2 PSCS2 (external link) is still available if you decide to go beyond DPP.
I don't remember needing a serial #, but if you do, look at steps 2-5 Here. (external link)

Sticky: Sharpening Tips & Tricks, Tutorials, and FAQ

As you can see, there are several ways to sharpen, but generally, I only sharpen the part of the image that will benefit the most.

aka Chattering Billy :-)

My favourite composer/bandleader named a 2CD album after this bird, which according to one source has an "irresponsible song".

Common Snipe...... I had 11 of these 5-6 metres from me today. I was beginning to wish I had a zoom lens instead of a prime, at one stage I couldn't focus on any of them, the limitations of my prime lens with regards to MFD with 1.4x TC was tested. It was difficult to move back as I was in a small hide with small window openings. Eventually the Snipes flew off to a clearing about 50 metres further out then that is when the prime came into it's use.
