However, the compression of the "save as .jpg" you are using, makes it look a lot worse than it is -I'm sure.
I mean, hey, 56KB ???? try to save it at a lower compression higher quality ratio, try to get a 150KB or even 200KB file...
Sometimes, the difference between a 300mm f/2.8 and a 70-300mm G at 300mm f/5.6 is the ratio we choose to save the file.
Don't worry about b/w and connection speeds, even a 56Kbps can perform well with a 200KB file...
Just my suggestion for a MAJOR improvement on quality.
Very nice pic. I checked and Panos is right. You must have saved it at level 6 or 8. I always save at level 12 (using PS CS). Makes for big files and slow downloads for folks on dial-up, but it sure does show your shots in the best light.

I don't pay much attention to the net image rez of the pic posts anymoe, cause I know what the net does. I can still tell a great image and yours is.

Also don't quite know how to process with the new LCD Grrrr
Ed, I used the Kinko converter today with the 80-400 Vr.
I am happy with it. Thank You
mike mac said:Very nice Ed I liek it, I dont even use the save for web I resize the shot to 800 on the long side and then do a save as and save at level 9-10 or between about 250K and 300K. Gives a much cripser image online then the save for web feature
