On Tricolored Heron in Quiet Reflection in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (24 comments in total)
In reply to:

rmbackus: I guess PhotoShopped ? The water has not a completely calm surface to reflect the trees in focus. On the other hand, the bird's reflection is razor sharp.

Already checked it...very nice !

I think the point of the beak and the eye should reflect exactly in a vertical line down.

On Soft-Pro portrait in the Filter Effects: Soft Focus challenge (5 comments in total)

I've always liked the soft focus effect and mainly used the Zeiss Softar I to achieve this effect. However now there is the B&W Soft-Pro filter with a very similar and mild softening result.

In reply to:

Joe Pineapples: It's a very traditional portrait, and very nicely lit (100x better shot than the winner) apart from the whopping big line that runs down past the guy's ear, which IMO is a bit sloppy...

Joe

You're right. I'd used a wooden cupboard as background.
I've already corrected this with PS.

Shouldn't the size of the pictures be the same ?
The Nikon picture is slightly zoomed out.

In reply to:

Tapper123: OK, I clicked here to see the girl. But when I actually looked at the photo full size I saw a blurry OOF mess of a photo. I'm sorry, yes this is a good subject but a bad photograph.

'...a nice softness...' :-(
Throw away your Softars and tripods and switch off your camera's 'steady shot'.

There is this same syndrome for guitars :-)

I'm aways asking myself:
Do I need this new camera ?
Will I make better pictures and finally win prizes ?

A good example for modern cinema. Great idea - the picture quality is not important. Thank you.
