    As you've already understood ... selecting the single af point and hitting that eye would have been a better option in the first place, but this certainly lifts the photo a bit into the right direction I fell.

    oh MA, I'm not narrow minded, really, I mess in Lightroom a ton. : ) What I'm inadequately saying is that I feel people should learn to master their camera first and their processng software second. If they produced better images from the first, they would have less need for the second. I'd rather have someone walk away with information on how to make a better picture than concentrate on ways to mask their mistakes in software.

    sorry to derail your thread Ihosphotography.

    Oh I totally agree with that WD. Every word.

    And I just said "a bit narrow minded on this point (in my opinion)" ... not narrow minded in general
    And my opinion has never been accepted as Gospel .... hence why I make it clear it is only my opinion

    Thank YOU for mentioning my blog helped you! It's so nice to hear feedback like that!

    Yes, WD's advice is spot on. Prevention is always better than cure

    Ready for sale? That's a tough one to answer! This is a nice shot and probably is indeed saleable at the right price, in the right size, to the right person, in the format etc etc.
    For instance, for web or as a smaller shot in a magazine or something I'm sure it's very well suited. To be blown up to poster size for top dollar, I don't personally think so, but then someone might love it, pay the money and prove me totally wrong. That's photography for you ... so subjective it's literally impossible to take a photo that everyone loves it seems, or at least near impossible.
