Honestly I'm completely surprised that I could improve the results as much as I did just by holding the camera differently and slowing down a bit.
You are not the first. The nice thing is that digital allows us to improve our technique without having to burn through a lot of film.

I loved Heie's article. I've been shooting for 30 years, but I've improved a lot in the last year with the help of that article.

Something to lean on makes a big difference, but in the absence of that: stance/posture, concentration, breathing. Strange, but I have to remind myself to breathe properly. I like to shoot at the end of an exhale, and try not to stab the shutter button.

A tremendous compliment to not only have the article referenced by multiple people but also cited as the easy fix for marked improvement in the quality of one's photography.

Thanks guys, and I'm really touched that the article is still being found as pertinent despite being beyond the expiration of that article contest
