This is a sharpened version, It may be that the grass was waving in the wind on that day, hence the softness, I used a Canon 70-200 L at 200, f8, 125th sec. Maybe a bit of camera shake there too, although I thought the Image Stabiliser would have taken care of that.
I don't know if anybody else is exeriencing this problem but I cannot preview images before posting. When I click on 'preview', all I can see is the text - no image. Does anybody have the solution?
