    To me it just lloks like a snapshot out the window of a moving car the original needs to be in better foucus to get a truly sharp image.

    Thanks for the responses. So how do I fix this in the future? What is the likely suspect; focus, shake or both?

    This was hand held f4.0 1/250 70mm , so I'm thinking its probably focus.

    Also, Is there any "rule of thumb" when to use a tripod? Or is that an individual thing I need to work out for myself.

    The rule of thumb for the tripod - use it whenever the exposure time is more than 1/focal distance (ex - 1/20 with a 100mm lens )
    This shot looks like a snapshot to me, i don't see a clear subject or something to hold my eye.
