Hi Everyone,

I took another photo at f6.3 as rain stopped today, is this better than f4? (My eye sight not the best)

The first one looks sharper but the lighting is more contrasty, and sharpness depends to some extent on contrast. You can only compare if you have identical framing and lighting.

Put your camera on a tripod (or find some way of keeping it steady) then take a series of shots one after the other at different f-stops.

Also when I enlarge on the monitor, i see kind of fuzziness but could anyone tell me what this is.

It's just the way the lens performs on your camera. You can remove most of it with a certain amount of sharpening but be careful because if you overdo it you generate false detail that can look pretty ugly.

I don't think it is a noise at iso200. Thanks.

I'm happy for anyone to edit any of my photos and display the results
