Your focus point is good on the bottom half of the feather. It has the right effect.
Well done. WesternRed.

Hi, Nathan, this image is awesome, so simple but highly effective, not at all easy to do. You have done a superb job my friend, creative camera and processing skills,
Well deserving of the highly coveted carper UA award.
The fluffy white feather has tremendous sentimental value to me and my wife, lost our daughter to cancer a few years back, you would not believe the amount of fluffy white feathers that have landed on and around us at totally unexpected times, new it was our daughter saying she is always with us. Tears are flowing as i type, cheers my friend.SadSmileSmileSmile
