Do not understand what you mean too
you need to provide us with more details, so we can provide better advise.
Like your settings, MF/AF, aperture and so on.
Possible reason for less-sharp pics are:
IS on while on tripod
Movement due to unstable tripod
diffraction due to very small aperture use may also cause pic to be less sharp
for landscape shooting, learn to manual focus and read up on hyper focal distance.
sorry about the lack of details.. I took this photo on a tripod using a canon 60d w/ tamron 17-50mm non-VC lens. I viewed through the viewfinder and LCD, I believe it was clearly focus. I did use the jetty as the focusing point (manual focus). Now the photo came outout of focus.. Is it my eyes or is it me using the wrong technique to focus?
Aperture is at f/32 @ 17mm, shutter speed: 10 secs, ISO 100
which part of the photo is not sharp? which part of the photo you want it sharp sharp??
The only type of lens I know can tahan F/32 safely without visible diffraction is a macro lens. Just my opinion, not fact.
as the rest have mentioned: diffraction and movement.
also as to why the jetty isn't sharp? it looks to be on stilts? they're pretty unstable
