I'd have to see it larger to see the lack of sharpness.

However, I see that was taken wide open. - stop your lens down to f/8 and use flash to get addational sharpness and DoF. Even with an UWA, you can still sometimes lose apparent sharpness due to the slightly thin DoF.

I think it must have to do with the lens I own (the only one). It is a Tamron 18-250mm f/ 3.5-6.3. This is by far the sharpest picture I have of a person.

Ill post some others Ive taken to see what I mean...


So a higher f/ will give me a sharper image, even in a shot like this where there isnt very much depth (between the camera and the wall)?
