    When I looked at the nose I was shocked to see that it looks like a pig nose. We live on the lake and the turtles are laying eggs so we have 15 - 20 turtles in our yard during a week. (My Lab thinks they are his play toys,lol ) ....I did some research and most pig nose turtles are not in this area,but some people have them as exotic pets. May have to do do more research.

    Hi Juana,

    The obvious suggestion would be to have a clearer path between your camera and the subject, those leaves and grass blades kinda get in the way.

    The other issue is focus, this was obviously tricky, but if you can, you should try to focus on the eyes of your subject.

    Hi again
    First of all ,any unsharp shot remains unsharp after pp. Second problem -nothing must be between subject of an image and the camera.So first with clone stamp at 70% it takes out the grass as you see below. Then more sharp method we apply:
    -Ctrl J to obtain Layer 1 then Filter/Other /High Pass at 250 radius,Ok,set blending mode of the layer 1 to overlay,then Enhance/Adjust lighting/Levels here you will see Output levels and move right arrow from 255 70 around 120!!!!(in this case)You 'll see a better definition of colored areas.Now Layer/Merge down then again Ctrl J for a new Layer 1.Then Enhance/Unsharp mask /Amount 500!!!/Radius o.2-0,3 and OK.Now Enhance,again Unsharp mask/Amount around 70-80/Radius70-80/Ok
    Thoughts
    Around the right eye with lasso tool and then with ctrl j You 'll obtain an area which has too light colors so Enhance/Adjust lighting/levels/Input levels and move left and middle arrows to the right,how much ,your taste will tell you.Flatten image and have success again.
