I realize this isn't the most exotic bird to capture but I like the photo. Any complaints?
Good use of B&W, but is the focus on the entire bird or just a part?
the focus is ... not well defined to me ... but not bad or off either.
nice close up of a standard bird. good for a biology book
oh, and the thread's title reminds me of something
This was at full zoom so my DOF is a bit shallow. Does it look like hes only in focus in one area?
I see what you mean. It might be due to the fact that Ive been shooting in RAW and my post processing is all trial and error.
Biology book huh? Ill be famous in high school finally!
Well, it's just that it seemed that the clearest focus was on the neck up to the head, now I understand that you had it at full zoom.
naah, not saying it is bad!
it is a detailed image showing the characteristics of that bird in a natural post -> biology book
as for the focus, having int more defined on the eyes would help a bit ... but as i said. it is not "off".
contrast is a bit soft, but hence detailed... you could make it "pop" more, if you pushed contrast, but you would then lose detail ...
Oh I know you weren't saying it was bad.
I tried pushing the contrast but Id lose the white in his neck. At the risk of turning this into a "photoshop challenge" could you show me what you would do?
