thanks for your critique. You are perfectly right, the picture is oversharpened. If you look at my other JPG pictures from Tunisia you will notice that they are somewhat blurred, but not out of focus. This is not the case as long as the pic is viewed in Aperture. I think that all this cropping, down sizing and sharpening affects the quality. tried to overcome the curious change by oversharpening. I also had the comment that the pictures are too light. The desert has an overpowering sunlight, maybe I should have used another f value.
With my best regards to you, Dietrich
