I must be missing something here... all of his/her pictures to me look like they ARE in focus?

I thought they were great!

No, you're not missing anything.

And yes, they are all in focus.

But "in focus" and "optimal image quality" are two different things. While the photos are most definitely in focus, they are likely not as sharp as they could be, due to diffraction that is typically caused when using very tiny apertures when you don't need to - such as f22 or f25 on a crop sensor at a 10mm focal length.

The diffractions issues that we speak of are nothing that you will be able to see on an internet jPeg. However, if the OP were to make big prints of his images - like 3 feet across - or to view his images on a large hi-resolution monitor, the effects of diffraction would be visible.

We're just trying to help out a newbie with some setting-related advice. He obviously already has a great sense of composition! And yes, the photos look just fine the way they are presented here on the internet.

.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

On my 27" monitor they looked a bit soft to me. And if handheld while hiking that makes absolute sense to me. I'm jealous of the locations... hopefully someday I'll be able to experience them as well.

Thank you both for clarifying the issue :-)

thanks. beginning to wonder if my eyes were deceiving me. shooting hand held in some low light conditions while still trying to employ a cpl to take the glare off led me to just shoot at different settings until I could get the depth, color, and lighting that I was trying to get. Obviously I still have a lot to learn. Maybe one day I can go back without wife and three kids and bring a tripod with me.

Thanks. There is a lot of room on the rim to get shots. Some were willing to walk up and sit down on the edge, I was on my belly reaching out. Heights aren't my thing. Horseshoe Bend gives up some amazing images if you have time to wait on the light. The sunrises and sunsets both offer unique opportunities. It was a grey cloudy day in the desert when we were there. That whole area around Page offers some incredible scenery with Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend right there and The Wave (at Vermillion Cliffs) and the north rim of the Grand Canyon within an hour drive and Zion and Bryce within 2 hours +/-. The whole Lake Powell area offers even more phot ops but we didn't have time to explore Lake Powell.

Heights are not my thing either. They scare the S%&$ out of me most times.

My favorite of this year was a composite of 2 images. This is a Day to Night on 9/11 taken from the Teardrop Memorial in Bayonne, NJ. 1st image was taken as the sun was setting and produced a nice golden glow on the buildings and the 2nd was after it was completely dark. Files were merged in Photoshop and a graduated filter was used for the transition.

That's crazy! I have an almost identical shot. We must have stood in the same spot, TJ :)
