Sharpness is one of the things that I first look for in my images. There are times when you don’t need fine detail to convey a mood or message. Sometimes the weather conditions are such that it is impossible to see very far at all. When heavy rainfall obscured the mountains, I concentrated on the foreground trees and the mid-ground hills as the background the mountains. You see the shades of grey going from dark (close) to light (distant). Some of the blurring in this picture is caused by water droplets on my window. Nothing is really sharp, but I think it’s fairly clear what is the subject of the image.
