RE: How to increase sharpness in the attached picture
Mar 24, 2013

I would like some opinions how sharpness could be increased in the attached picture.

Please note that I am not interested in opinions on composition, lighting, etc.  Strictly sharpness.

I handed my Canon G1-X to a bystander to take the shot.  It was set with a shutter speed of 1/80 and F-stop of 5.6.  Picture was taken RAW and processed using DPP software using unsharp mask settings of:  strength 6, fineness 2, and threshold 1.

I suspect at least one of the following faults:

1)  slight instability when handled by stranger led to some blurriness even at 1/80

2)  F-stop should've been stopped down further to capture more of the group in focus

3)  Maybe unsharp mask settings are too low and should've been increased

Appreciate responses,
