I had an e-mail from Moose about the focusing on this photo:
I can't find the e-mail now but I wanted to explain. I did have the SL on
face recognition and it does focus on the eyes; however, that photo is an
extreme crop of this one:
The focus is on the eyes of the boy standing next to her (I cropped and
printed him, too), but I loved her expression
Glad to know that neither your SL nor eyes failed you!
and thought the focus was good enough for notecards and/or postcards. I won't
be printing a 2'x3'
canvas of her.
I didn't make that connection. You asked/said "Isn't this a beautiful girl? . . .
She looks like Mona Lisa to me."
I answered, in effect, "Sure, but doesn't she deserve a better portrait?" and illustrated that such was still possible.
As to sharp enough for a notecard, sure - but I might still see the difference, I can't unsee what my 20/10 vision sees.
I can often see whether small prints are from sharp originals.
Why not do the best possible?
What if the Hokey Pokey *IS* what it's all about?
