I've been trying to get the kind of clarity I see in online photos in my own pics. Finally I decided to see how MY pics might look on the web. Seems things just look clearer online ! I'm sure there's some technical mumbo jumbo explanation for this. I'm still not where I'd like to be but will have to let you know if it's equipment and/or photographer limitations. I'm really hoping just the latter and I don't have to spring for a better camera.
