One from the archives. I focused on the eye and as a result of a f/4.5 aperture the tip of the beak is out of focus. Does it matter? I didn't select it earlier because I thought it did. On revisiting it I am just wondering?

no it does not matter. I personally think it makes you focus more on the eye. As that is on a 3rd, for me it works.

well done

The incredible detail in the eye really makes the beak a non issue.

I would however suggest timing down the brightest areas to get more detail in the head plumage, and if you like, the beak itself can be sharpened quite a bit just on its own as in the mod.

Hope this is helpful,
