This is one of those images that just doesn't make the grade. I think it could have been a fine image. In the end, the picture is just too soft and no amount of sharpening is going to make it live up to its potential.
|Exposure||0.067 sec (1/15)|
|Focal Length||55 mm|
If we dissect the EXIF data, we can see a suspect in the shutter speed (exposure). Even when combined with an ISO of 1600 (the image was taken inside of a barn) 1/15th of a second is pretty slow for hand held shooting.
However, I suspect the real culprit is the fact that I was standing on tip toe, holding the camera above my head, and using the live view 2.75 inch display to focus. I don't see evidence of the shaking that you would normally see with long exposures. Instead of shaking, the entire image is just a bit soft. I think we can convict my bad attempt at focusing of the crime.
