heres a program called gimp that you can use to fix up the edges of this picture. i tested it out on this other pics and it worked very well on getting rid of the blurry edges and redefining the sharper ones to help the focus point out [link]

thanks a lot for the tip, I use gimp a lot but try to avoid photomanip and retouching, both steal from my photographic abilities.

Yeah I know what you mean. It took me a while to start editting things and when I did it was all me touching up tiny areas just to change the focus points.

Ah, it's a shame that the head isn't focused there. =/

The colours are brilliant. I really like how green the bird is and how you've got some red and orange to contrast with that.

But yeah, it's a small shame that it's not focused more... other than that, it's a lovely shot. I like the depth of field and the way you've positioned it all. :nod:

I am still not sure if it is a focus issue or a chromatic aberration with the small bird and use of a 300mm lens...

Thanks a lot for the comment.

A little out of focus... :S.. don't know whether it was intended this way or not.. but nice click! :)

alahay Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2011
I guess the slightly blurred edge is due to the lens artifact at 300mm and that is quite expected. The important thing is that the eye is in focus and I believe it is. thanks
