RE: Pre-screening (VTORD)

Sorry I am little late with my response. Have been overloaded at the day job! So I took NZ107's advice and did a 3:2 aspect ratio and it does seem that the centering was easier. I added a very little dash of sharpness (frankly I have no idea if it really works in Picasa). This time I saved it 1024 x...

Okay I accept the point on the winglet. I am not convinced about the oversharpening. I am not going to appeal this one but what do you think is causing the "soft"? This was shot at 1/1000 at ISO 100 & highest res jpeg - not RAW. I am still not comfortable with RAW......

I always held the camera facing up while changing out lenses and recall doing this atleast 2-3 times out doors. I am not sure if that is adding to the dust on the sensor. Like NZ107 said....It might help a little.

Khalid,
I am very new myself and have not even been spotting for 6 months. I am yet to post a photo but I use a Canon Rebel T3i and have a 55-250 f4.5/5.6 lens that I use. I think CaptainKramer has summed it up pretty well.
