    This would have been one of the many I deleted when I got home and realized it was fuzzy. Post your exif info

    Is that the original shot, or a processed shot? If it's the original, it's too blurry to save, I think. If the blurriness was caused by processing, (over-sharpening, or whatever) then it might help to post the original.

    To me, it looks OOF, over-sharpened, and over-saturated. It's a neat rock formation, however, and if it weren't for the above mentioned problems, it'd probably be a pretty cool shot.

    It WOULD have been a good shot, but alas, it didn't turn out for you. I don't think there is really going to be much you can do on this one. Any sharpening you try and do will make it worse. It looks like this was taken way underexposed and the exposure was brought way up PP. This isn't the original is it?

    DRAT, he says.. .... . in my haste this morning, I uploaded the wrong pic ... When I get home tonight, I'll post the original with the EXIF info.. This one has an 'orton' effect thats blurred the image beyond repair... I think someone can do something with the original ... I just fooled around with this one too much and now I dont' like anything I do to it..

    That's what happens when you have 5 minutes to leave and can't find your glasses, then can't find your keys, then ... .. never mind.. :x

    Hold on.... I'll be back later today..

    tks,

    Well... I gave it a shot.

    This is the best I could come up with.

    I think it's an improvement.

    People only need to be 13 years old to be forum members. There are at least 2 regular posters that are only 15 or so.

    I sure don't mean to offend. I thought it was worth a laugh. My apologies.

    I though it was quite funny and think it's silly to be offended by that. You can see absolutely nothing and the girl is so small and pixilated that you REALLY can't even see anything. You'd get more out of going to the beach than with your edit. If somebody actually gets aroused by your edit.....wow....they have problems.
