The shots above look blurry to me. I looked on flickr for similar shots of the same cityscapes(seattle) and those looked blurry to me too.
For both shots I manually focused in live view and everything looked really good before the shot. Also, using a tripod on concrete.
Canon T3i, Shutter 30 sec, FStop 6.3, Lens Canon efs 18-200, Stabilizer ON, Shooting with 10 sec delay ISO 100
Will the lights on the buildings ever be really crisp, they look like little blobs when viewed in full size, or is a little blur par for the course?
Is it possible that Im getting slight movement from somewhere? Vibrations? Wind? Camera Strap?
Given the advice, I went back and took this
Canon T3i, Shutter 25 sec, FStop 14, Lens Canon efs 18-200, Stabilizer OFF, Shooting with 10 sec delay ISO 100
Much better. I think the difference was the F-Stop, but I cannot rule out wind, because tonight there was none and the other pic was shot when there was wind.
Not sure which answer to mark as the answer. Everyone had the answer. Thanks for all the advice.
