Saw this beautiful Rose of Sharon in my colleague's home garden. I was waiting for the hummingbird but found this bumble bee trying to land on the flower. Loved the body language of the bee.

If you mean the JPEG cpompression level of the image itself, always set the quality as high as possible. Meaning 99% if your camera allows, certainly not lower than 85% (the default for many cameras). SD cards are cheap enough. I use a card only once, keeping them as backup.

For uploading to this site, I make a copy and resize (scale) the image to 1600 pixels on the long side. Rename the scaled version as such to keep the two versions clearly distinct. (file.jpeg file-scaled.jpeg)

The picture looks hazy. I am not sure whether I made a mistake while compressing the file or is there a problem in uploading?
