Hello,

 

I took this picture using one of those really tiny tripods and took this pic with 16 mm at  f6.3 . I also had a 2 second delay so that i don't shake the came ra, but i still got the blur. 

 

Could it be possible that this happened due to some "movement" in the tripod due to wind?

 

or should i have got the focus right before doing this?

Thank you for your input.

Welcome!  I cannot see your image, and I do not have a drop box account.  Maybe you can just upload your image to this site.

Could you both please try clicking on the link now and check whether that worked? If that doesn't work, I'll have to get in touch with the admins, since it doesn't look like I have access to the upload tools currently  :(

Looks like motion blur to me? Do you have a SOLID tripod? Cheap tripods are not very stable and can move with the wind especially if the camera is light. If you have a hook on the center column add some weight.

I tend to agree with Grimlock.

The scene shows nice potential

Okay, I figured that it might have something to do with my tripod. Bummer, I did this on a trip to San Diego, so I wont have access to that location anymore, but thanks for your response. It looks like I might have to use a heavier tripod next time. Thanks!

They can be sturdy and strong without being heavy.  And they fold up quite small.

Prices vary greatly. ;)

Solid tripod and hang a weight from a hook under it, 5 pounds or so will help. A lot.
