He is handsome! Crisp focus! Would a blurry background put him more in focus and be less distracting??   Posted: 05/10/2020 09:53:13

The background is pretty blurry except for the tree behind his tail. I did not notice that until I saw this here.

Nice composition, the subject might be a little dark in relation to the background.   Posted: 05/16/2020 15:51:20

I really like the chicken, great focus and exposure. What I am learning is backgrounds and less is better. When you stop down on the aperture you get more of the background in focus or less blurry. So the separation of the subject and the background the more blurry it will be and this is what a lot of the judges are looking for. Set your aperture so the subject is all in focus and the background is not. It really helps to look at the background right after you pick a subject. I hope this will help it took me a long time to learn this simple rule. Dan   Posted: 05/22/2020 10:12:07
