    G'day mate

    That is very, very nice - what a fabulous image and I'm sure that you are proud that it's now in your collection of great images
    How about a 12 x 16" on the kitchen wall now so that you can enjoy it daily

    Bird looks great n sharp.
    There is however an appearance of a smudge tool mark above/left of it's head and to the right of the tail. But something is going on with the tail a bit.
    Hard thing I would have to say is, the "cleaner" the image, the more visible any natural or unnatural things come up.

    thanks for looking guys

    Apart from a little sharpening and a slight crop no other editing was needed on this one, so the background is just as it was shot and what you mention just oof grasses way in the background. The tail - well just like the rest of the bird, it is in the plane of focus and is detailed and sharp, or perhaps i am missing something :confused:

    Stanm & Ozzie_Traveller,
    This is s a superb image!
    Quick question tho, how does one go about making the decision as to what size to print an image to display it on my home walls?
    I take some (tho not nearly as good as this) photo and would like to put some on my home walls but can hardly ever get Costco to get it right.
    Not that I am blaming the big box printers... probably more like I don't know what I am missing to accomplish a good quality print.
    I have many frames that I "rescue at yard sales" but all sit empty and this saddens me.
    Hoping for a reply soon,
    Paul

    G'day Paul

    In simple terms I would a) create a blank canvas of a size equal to an existing frame, then b) copy / paste a photo onto the blank canvas for printing. Obviously there will be some resizing of the image to match the canvas, but your IQ "should" still be okay, presuming you've got enough pixels to start with

    These days with most cameras producing > 12mpx then the printed size up to 20" x 30" is well within the pixel range of your image. Also available to us is the print-shop machinery options of pixel interpolation [done automatically] of up to 1440 DPI as well

    As always, feedback welcome
    Hope this helps
    Phil
