    okay guys, here is my dilemma, I'm now currently shooting with a 5D. I cant seem to get my image to look sharp...more so flat looking if anything.

    Might be motion blur. What are your settings and what lens are you using.

    24-105mm portrait mode
    sharpness at +1
    contrast +2
    Saturation +1
    color tone 0

    Heres another one i did but this one is after the fact that i had to go on photoshop and boost up the contrast to make it like it is.

    What are your iso, shutter speed and aperture settings?

    make sure you're focusing on your subject in the proper place. i almost always have my focus point on my subjects eye. i've noticed if i don't use the single focus point focus point but just focus on the subject in general, i will get similar results to what your images show

    i cant remember to that exact time...but i think i was shooting at anywhere from 100 to 400 iso. Shutter im thinking at least 1\60 and aperture was either a 5 or a 5.6

    I don't think it's focus. I can't find any place on the image where it's in focus. That's why I think it might be motion blur.

    the fact that you linked these from myspace makes it difficult to tell if anything is in focus, because myspace kills image quality.

    do you have the original file you can upload via tinypic or something similar?

    You could get motion blur at 1/60 if you were not holding the camera very steady. You might try using a tripod or getting your shutter speed up to 1/125 or higher.

    Yes, the image quality is poor.
