There are some things that work about this shot, and one that doesn't, in my opinion at least. The colours, DoF and composition are exactly what I was after, but the clarity/sharpness leaves something to be desired. A lot of the time I'm really pleased with my camera – it's small and unobtrusive, it takes pretty decent shots, and I didn't need a second mortgage to buy it – but on occasion I do wish that it would produce slightly more detailed images. There isn't anything majorly wrong with this shot, but it is a little less detailed than I was aiming for, and no amount of sharpening will restore detail that isn't there in the first place. Anyway, let me know what you think.

Oh, and we finally got a moving date yesterday – the 19th of this month. We were originally aiming to have moved by late June, so I don't suppose the 19th is too bad, but it does seem as though the whole process has been somewhat more complicated than necessary. Anyway, hopefully – fingers crossed – there won't be any more changes of plan.
