Except for the edges of the tunnel, this shot turned out exceptionally sharp and clear. Worth it!

I think it may have picked up the movement of the car Adam. It was one of those, "lets push the shutter and see what happens. It was on manual focus too from some earlier shots. JIM

Nice shot Jimbo, I like the framing of the tunnel entrance, even tho the entrance is not in focus. However, I think that the mountain is in focus is more important. Good shot, especially since it was a "grab" shot.

Living on the edge, ha. I think not having sharp focus on the tunnel draws your attention out of it which is good, IMHO.

Good shot Jim, kudos for keeping your windshield clean. I guess that windshield is an oversize UV filter.

Thanks Jim. I think the car moving caused the tunnel to be out of focus. JIM
