I took these shots at a bird of prey show, they were taken using the new auto focus system in the 5D Mk3 but I have a concern regarding the images. I took three shots which I have uploaded as versions to this one which seem to have the subjects dropped in using Photoshop. I think that the problem is the sharpness of the subject in contrast to the blurred background but i would like everyone else's opinion on what they think about the shots looking Photoshopped. Is the new 5D Mk3 so sharp that this is going to be a problem, I don't recall this happening with my Mk2, What do you think?
Image 1 - Lightened slightly using fill light in ACR, cropped and a gap in the trees cloned. Sharpened then uploaded.
Image 2 - Is cropped and has had the background desaturated as it was the same colour as image 1, then sharpened.
Image 3 - Is cropped and sharpened.
Thanks in advance for your comments
