    looks blurred and has a little CA. What shutter speed were you using?

    I agree that it doesn't look as sharp as it could be. Just curious what your shooting settings were for this shot?
    I prefer the 2nd crop.

    What were your settings?
    Did you set the timer to release the shutter while your camera was on a tripod?

    The softness of the focus may just be the lens.
    Particularly if 300 mm was the maximum focal length of a consumer grade zoom lens.

    If a small lens aperture was used, say f/11 to f/32, focus softness would be contributed to by diffraction.

    The good news is that the exposure looks great -- so that's working out well for you. But the focus is a touch soft. Did you use auto-focus or manually focus?
