Shot #1 is the same shot I posted yesterday, hand-held.
Shot #2 is that scene today shot with a tripod.

Shot #3 is yesterday's shot, hand-held, "100% Crop"
Shot #4 is today's shot with tripod, "100% Crop"

Same time of day
Hand-Held shots - Light Rain
Tripod Shots - Partly Cloudy
Color Balance was a little different today also (sloppy post-processing)
I was about 10 feet closer with tripod, and angled slightly different
I think my focus could have been better too.....

I used my old tripod (too lazy to get my newer one out, which is more stable) and it was not very steady - I had to use a 15 second delay timer to let the camera/lens stop shaking after pressing the shutter release (please, don't tell me I should get a better tripod! - I know that, but won't). Oh, and I did have the UV filter on today but not yesterday, but I don't think it shows much difference.....
