    I think thi is better than some previous, the coat looks well rendered, DOF and focus looks spot on. I like the background.. and foreground.

    Hi John, the setting has some nice atmosphere and I'm glad you gave space around to the subject. Visually I think it could do with a slight CW rotation, but again I do question was the raw sharp and SS? It does have a slight crunchy feel as per the last one. Slightly darkening the BKG and addings some saturation into the coat just lifts the image. i do like the PoV. How are you applying NR and sharpening?

    HI John, a nice subject with good environment and habitat on display. I like the pose and separation from the BG.

    Hi John -- This looks nice with that low pov as compared to the previous post but it still appears crunchy to me. I liked the fg as well.

    TFS !

    I rarely apply noise reduction. There is no noise reduction applied here. If i do i just paint it over the background with the adjustment brush in Lightroom. Sharpening in the detail panel.

    John, I thought I had sent you a link to Adobe tutorials on this subject in the early days of joining, as it shows you how to apply NR in the Details panel and how to apply in-put sharpening to an image. You also need to apply 'out-put sharpening' to all images after you have cropped prior Output. All digital files need sharpening, however the laster stage is only 'perceptual' sharpening. I have suggested you Export via LR (File > Export) as you then 'customise' Export Location ie Desktop, File Settings, Image size ie 1600px wide, Output sharpening, Water marking, which I think you would benefit from and the end results far better.

    BTW your posted macro images look great, so I'm puzzle why the Wildlife are less so, again, could it be the lens?
