I've read the sharpest aperture is f5.6, but it's pretty much as sharp wide open.

Thank you! I used a 430 EX II flash mounted directly on the camera.

Nice. I didn't expect a speedlight would have enough power in such situation.

Thanks. There were some shots where i actually needed less power. I need to figure out how to get half or quarter power flash.

What type of flash are you using. Most have the ability to reduce the power output.
