    f/3.5 is going to have a shallow depth of field, therefore only a portion of the picture is going to be really sharp. for landscape, I find most of the time closing the lens down and using a tripod and either timer or cable release is the way to go. f/32 or so is nice to have. f/22 works in most cases as well. For waterfalls, I use shutter priority, but it generally means stopping down quite a bit. You need that depth of field if you want to show everything good and sharp!

    can you retake the picture?
