I am shooting some of this stuff at ISO 50, 1/200, f10+I can set my 10d up on a tripod, use f9 with a perfect focus and my shots turn out to be no where near as crisp as yours
Amazing photos, very good lighting technique.
I have to ask though, what equipment are you using?

like i said...use more light the 10D body is dated, but still a good sensor. more than capable of similar results.
So on a sunny day, the direct sunlight isn't enough? I think the fact you have a 1d mk3 with if its infantley times better censor is how your images come out so crisp. Even on a tripod with f22 with proper exposure with nothing moving, my shots are no where near the level of crispness as yours.
direct sunlight is definitely not enough to get serious image quality. the camera body itself makes almost no difference, especially at these rinky-dink 35mm sizes...the sensor isn't *that* much bigger percentage-wise that it would mean some immediately noticeable difference. if i were shooting medium or large format digital then you may have a point. granted the 10D is 4 generations older than the 1D3 so the sensor tech. itself is obviously better, but I also use a 20D and get similar results to the 1D when I use a lot of light.
nomix is also correct about his post, and I am using a fairly sharp stack of lenses which helps with crispness.
