Not All In

By RubberBullets
OK another Damsel, and another image that I am happy with, but which (with yesterday's image) where I'm at at the moment.

Elements of yesterday's shot with elements of today's would make, I think a stand out shot, but I never get everything right at the same time.

Yesterday I had the whole damsel in focus, but on a rather flat and uninteresting leaf, today the composition, and perch are much more interesting, but the damsel is partly out of focus. *sigh*

One day I'll get it all right, then I'll be really happy Smile

It's natural Tim, nobody's perfect. Win some..loose some. We can't please everybody. But your photo is excellent, sharp to soft. Lens is lens, but our eyes is the perfect lens of all.

Sometimes its best to have a bit slightly out of focus, it gives a more natural feel to it Tim so don't be disheartened. This is a cracker.
Many thanks for your comments by the way and good luck with the 10-20 it's a good lens. Look forward to seeing the results.

I know exactly what you are trying to achieve Tim but don't give up. This is still an excellent shot and I know how difficult it is to get a perfect one of these. IMHO I thought yesterdays was 'knockout'.

Great detail on the focal plane, although a little shallow!

Well done!

Thanks for the comments, and Carsten I'm afraid that I have no idea what that means but thank you. I know that my name gives the impression that I'm German but actually I don't speak a word!

Tim

@ Tim,

But what do you mean with your german profil name??

I am german

Well schadenfreude is indeed a German word, but it is also a word that has found its way into the English language. Why it is my name is an old and tiresome story Smile

It is very out dated now and I will change it sometime when I get round to it.

@ Tim,
... no no don't change it, I like your name... Smile)
