768 Checking Leaf Detail

I have a theory that if you have an essentially white sky behind leaves you're going to get very smeary looking tree tops where the leaves are outlined by that bright white sky. I also feel that leaves move very easily and if your shutter speed isn't high enough, they won't look sharp either. It was very hot and still in Tryon, North Carolina, where I took this picture this morning and I set the shutter speed very high. Fortunately, the sky color was not stark white. After resizing down I did sharpen quite a bit. I find the F30 pictures can take way more sharpening than those from my Canon A610 and that I will find a lot of detail when I sharpen that I didn't know could be found.
Fluorescent white balance????? Just checked the camera data in Photoshop and the White Balance is listed as Auto! PBase can interpret EXIF information in some really strange ways!

Nice work, what amazes me most is that gas is almost 3.00 a gallon there! We are still in the 2.85 range....
