    Sharpness Test

    Is your photo "sharp", not too sure ?

    Post an example here - the ONLY thing assessed is sharpness at the focus point

    Top one (crop) is brilliant focus- no problem. Skin texture and colour show up so well - terrific.

    Answer: Of course it is sharp - wonderfully sharp - I like sharp. But can't gauge the sharpness of the eye.
