Default Any hope for this one?

Alright guys, I got this one nabbed for poor image quality earlier today, and it may be my computer, but any suggestions on what I may be able to do to get this photo in?

ISO 100
F6.3
1/640 on the exposure

The only thing I could think of would be a big of under exposure on the side? Then again, I'm still somewhat of a newbie.

Thanks in Advance,
Chase

I would just go ahead and appeal that one. I don't see the poor quality. Colors and exposure seem ok to me and the sharpness is good.

Thanks for the note, I tried appealing the shot, but I guess my computer must of messed up or something along those lines as the appeal reason didn't make it through to the admins. I wasn't even sure if the appeal even made it, as I believe I lost connection briefly. Anyhow, my apologies to the admins for the appeal reason not showing up, I attemped to type something, I guess my computer must of been presenting a problem..

Framing a bit on the tight side with the curve, do you have a frame or two before this one

I did a few different angles, however I haven't resized them yet. I'll look through them tonight, and see if they look any better than the one I've already submitted. This was more of a test image than anything else, I'm still pretty new with SLR's.

Thanks.
Chase

To me, it appears that you have over-sharpened your image. This is noticeable in the grab bars on the top and front of the nose. They have a "candy cane" look to them. The bars should have a straight, seamless look if the sharpening is done correctly.

I would try also cropping some off the right side, which means cropping a bit off the top and/or bottom to bring the image into proportion.

Hmm, thanks for the note, I do notice the over sharpened nose as well, and the cropping could be adjusted. I'll work on the image again, and hopefully submit it to the DB.
