Hey everyone,
I went surfing today and took some pics, and one came out pretty blurry...I've seen things on photoshop that one can do to fix pictures that come out blurry, so I was wondering if there is anything anyone can teach me to do, or give me some pointers on what to do with this pic...

Here's another pic, just for comparisons sake...so you can see really how blurry the pictrue came out.

I tend to think applying Unsharp Mask would be your best bet. Here's a sample using it but of course theres some image loss since I don't have the original file to convert:

It looks more like camera movement to me.

What F number/focal length were those?

If its broad daylight you might try shooting in apature mode a stop or two down if your using that sigma, it sharpens up (if you can still get the shutter speed needed)

Also if you using XT, shoot in ISO 400 its nearly identical to 100 and will give you better shutter speeds.

Hi,
The aperture was at F10....and the focal length was 17.4mm. And I didn't actually take these pictures...my brother took those pics of me surfing, so I really had no way to help him take better pics. I just kind of wish they weren't so blurry.

So I applied "Focus Magic," a Photoshop plugin to it, with the following result:

It seems like if you want some really good shots of yourself surfing, someone should be using a little more zoom to capture you "close-up." For example, here's a shot I took from my condo in Kauai last year with an FZ10 at full zoom:

Yea definitely...the only thing is, I'm using an SD200, so the zoom just really isn't there. I'm hoping to get an ultra zoom sometime soon(if I get the money), so hopefully I'll get some better pics...Anyways, how does that plug-in work? where do I download it from, and how do I install/use it?

Focus Magic (http://www.focusmagic.com/) is the place. They have plugins for both Windows and Mac, and stand-alone application for Windows. Also a trial version you can download and try for free.
