GSW

By philhomer  
At last, the patrolling Magpies, Jays, and Crows let the Woodpecker stay long enough for me to get a few images.

Unfortunately, he was a tad greedy and getting images without his beak full of suet was not an option.

Hi Phil.... some of these seem a little soft in around the eye whereas the feet seem to be sharp, nice colour and bg though.

Thanks Trev, proper observation always greatly appreciated - truth is i don't know how/why this would be the case s i tend to place the focus point on the eye area whenever possible and in these smaller aperture than normal is used and the subject is broadly lying along (rather than through) the focal plane.

I shall open up the images again and check focus-point positions

It happens to all of us at sometime PhilWink I have lost count of the times when I have uploaded a perfectly sharp image in PS that turns soft after uploading to the site.
