Is that Martin Mere near Southport Keith?

Unfortunately this shot is soft and I think the curves and/or levels could do with tweaking a bit.

Hi Ian, yes this is near Southport. Just short of 6 entrance but free to park. Nice and peaceful when I went on a weekday. The shot doesn't appear as soft until I upload it. This has been the case with a few of my other shots too. I seem to be struggling to keep the image the right size as well as retaining a good quality. Any advice on this would be welcome. Cheers. Keith

We're members at Martin Mere, worth it if you live nearby.

When you have resized do you apply a little sharpening to compensate? If not, you need to do so. Take a look in the techniques section for an article on high pass sharpening.

When you save it, use the save for web option if you have one. That leaves out some stuff like exif information, leaving more file space for the image itself.

I also go to Martinmere regularly. Red breasted geese are not easy birds to photograph but you did a nice job, well done.

Thanks for the info Ian. I am still very much a novice in photoshop, there is so much you can do. Up until now I do use save for web but the only adjustments are brightness/contrast and saturation. Always keen to learn more though. Still learning new things on my D70 too. I actually live in Cronton, Widnes near to the M57 so Marton Mere is within easy reach. Keith

This is so beautiful. Excellent colours and focus IMO.
Good natural background and great exposure.
Well done.

Had my D70 8 months now and still learning it in many ways. The softness in the shot is probably down to a small amount of shake if you were on the long end of the lens, I have the same problems especially in poor light.

Look forward to seeing more.
