This photo was taken with my new lens and it is tack-sharp! I only cropped and adjusted levels on this photo... that's it! I LOVE IT! I feel very, very blessed to have discovered another new hobby for which I have soul-infusing passion. I have loved learning Photoshop these last few years and making special digital and printable mementos with other people's pictures. Discovering this artistic side has really made me happy. Now learning about photography marries this artistic side with my technical loving side too... there is so much more to taking a good picture than having a good camera!
Thanks for looking!
