    I had my chance to get some really good scenes of this angry lake Ontario.. but somehow .. even after a million settings on my Nikon D5oo with my Tamron 18-400mm I feel so disappointed.. Not entirely.. but enough to be unsatisfied .. can anyone just look at these photos and determine why I am not getting sharp vivid photos of a glorious angry lake with a blustery sky..I just cannot figure it out..Just give me a hint of why ... I spend enormous amount of time.. I keep blaming my lens..is it my lens on this camera...?? I realize I was in a bit of a rush.. the wind was blowing me almost off my feet...but...is it just me.. I will continue practicing...but I want to strive for better.. sodus point 251-001.JPG sodus point 253-001.JPG sodus point 250.JPG

    Is #1 cropped? If so, how much?

    Can you post the focal length and exposure settings for each shot? there may have been a bit of camera shake from the windy conditions. Also looks like the conditions could cause atmospheric distortion like haze and water spray.

    I think you captured the location and drama rather nicely!

    From the EXIF data, it looks like you shot all three with the widest aperture. I wouldn't guess that this is the best for the lens you have.
    In the second shot, I think the camera focused on the clouds in the background.

    Hmm I also see reference to Picasa in the EXIF ... is that right ?

    Are you using Picasa to do your JPEG (I am assuming you do not shoot RAW) image processing/adjustments ?
