    SO much better!, well done!!!!!

    Its sharp, not blurry; the focus point is on the leaves, and that middle thingy, with the front yellow flower a little out of focus, but miles better. A smaller aperture will get more of the flower, front to back in focus, meaning the depth from the lens to further into the flower.


    You dont need to use ISO 400, but it didnt make a lot of difference anyway. 100 would have given you a 1/20th exposure time. I think IS off helped a lot.


    I will download it an take a closer look at it and may upload a mod, - Im excited to see this improvement as all of us will be. Nothing so gratifying for us that someone who takes and uses feedback.

    Welcome to EPZ and the critique gallery Dennis.

    Theres no exif data to comment on shot settings, etc but as it looks, its a very nice shot; theres just the right amount of slight movement blur to show hes playing, and sharper areas, like his face to make it all work well. Mono is a great choice.

    I would suggest to shift him to the left, leaving the aspect ratio as-is just to make room for the trombone; theres some background area on the right visible that can be darkened to allow him to be totally separated from the background if you wish. Darkening black and sharpening a little more can give the metal a bit of sparkle and increase contrast.


    I have uploaded a mod to show what I mean. Click the blue modification box and then click the mod.


    Enjoy the site,

  • Moira, I just LOVE the Dublin series, - as a part Irish person you will understand how your journey, so well documented in this series really resonates with a person born and raised there, as I am.
