    Hey guys,

    Some say this photo is too busy, but some like it. I would just like to get more feedback on this photo.

    Thank you!

    I wouldn't say too busy, but there's some issues I worry about: First is the contrast. Now, I'm the first to admit I LOVE contrasty prints, but the contrast here isn't on the subject, it's on the stuff in the background. Second, the DOF seems funny. It's like the whole frame was shot in focus and then blurred in Photoshop. Am I right?

    The only thing edited in Photoshop was the color and vignette. I didn't add contrast or saturation to this image either and the blur was by my 55-250mm IS, so no adding blur in Photoshop :)..I don't believe in blurring a background in Photoshop..I've seen some done and they never look natural.

    Thanks for the comment!

    I second that ^, only it doesn't seem green to me, just bluish.
