    Some turtles - C&C please

    Hi,

    I know these are a common sight in southern Florida, but I liked this shot because of the framing and reflection. However, the front turtle in particular is not sharp, and I wonder how else the image could be improved.

    Shot at 200mm, f8.0, 1/125 hand held, ISO 800

    Thanks for any feedback,

    Dave

    The front turtle looks sharp to me.

    Having them all in a line has worked well. Possibly that bright reflection of the hind leg at the far right side is a little distracting. But nothing to worry about.

    Looks fine at the displayed size but is somewhat soft in the bigger version.

    Try a bit of contrast adjustment on just that front one and see if that improves it or not.

    Are you suggesting a vertical crop or horizonital crop?

    I think it is a very nice shot , dave. And the sharpness is perfectly acceptable.


    The short answer is ISO 1250 and f/11, and focus on the second turtle from the left. (use a tripod if you have one handy)

    Nice shot, Dave. I would tone down that bright reflection that Geoff pointed out.
