Challenge: New Year's Resolution VIII 7658211 (Standard Editing*)
Collection: Challenges 2018
Camera: Nikon D800
Lens: Nikon AF-S Nikkor 300mm f/4.0D IF-ED
Date: Jan 4, 2018
Aperture: 5.6
ISO: 800
Shutter: 1/60
Date Uploaded: Jan 7, 2018

I made (at least) 2 mistakes with this image: first, the shot was taken through the window of the front door, hence the softness I suppose (normally my Nikon 300mm f/4 lens produces really sharp images). Second, I resized the image to 1200x1200 pixels for DPC, way too large! If I had resized it to -for example- 800x800 pixels, it would have looked better.

Only meaning that my New Year Resolution is quite seasonable!

Great subject. I think you are setting a high bar.

Love the colors, but the softness everywhere isn't working very well for me. I'm loving it around the outside, but I really wish the eyes and whiskers were more in focus and not so soft. Maybe even some selective sharpening on those?
