Re: Critic this!

You probably already have seen it, but most retouchers don't give out their "tricks", yet there are a lot of techniques available if you go through the forums. And there are a few good tutorials here too, so don't forget to check them out.

Re: Critic this!

ice7, at f/8 and 28mm, depth of field starts at 3m or so and extends almost to infinity, so i don't think he shot at 28mm. Unless the subject was at less than 1m of the camera... but then she would totally look distorted. DOF increases with small focal lenghts.



Check the exif and find the focal length used and the focus distance.

Re: Critic this!

I think basically the answer to this is buy better glass. I used to have the same problems with my zoom lenses always being slightly soft until I spent the money and bought L lenses. The difference is night and day. An f8 1/100 shot should be crisp from nose to eye. Lenses are more important than camera. I did a test years ago with a rebet xt and the old 1DS MK2. They both had the same MP approx and other than durability and 1.6x magnification, the colors, balance crispness everything was identical. You get differences when you want to shoot multiple exposures at once. Or bump the ISO to extreme numbers etc, but for ISO 100 well lit single shots, there is not much difference between cameras of the same manufacturer.
