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. <http://www.moosemystic.net/Gallery/Others/Manley/Beauty.htm>

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?

Clarification Moose

What if the Hokey Pokey *IS* what it's all about?
