    If it's motion blur, there is a degree of acceptable motion blur when things are going on, this looks sharp to me, but then again, tis' a resized version.

    It's probably ok.

    A little CS3 motion or lens blur sharpening would help some. ;)

    I wouldn't call it bad photography. I like it. Maybe stop down one to get more of the girl's head in focus.

    Poor girl! It looks like she's going to do a lot of eyebrow plucking later on.

    the eyes seem sharp, at 1/250s i dont believe there would be any motion blur.
