    Yes it does and I've been wondering about that to be honest because look at this picture (this is just a screen shot from the Nikon software, zoomed in quite a lot). Focus point is right on yet it was totally OOF. To get it in focus I had to keep aiming at the post below (probably about 30cm down it) then keep the shutter held and move back up, which should just refocus to the kingfisher in the same way as if I'd originally aimed there, and it would be in focus!? I have no idea what that means, but it was annoying!
    Are you a member on NikonCafe? There's a fantastic post explaining the focus options and how you can use them. I'll have a ready and see if their rules allow me to post here. edit: http://www.nikoncafe.com/vforums/sho...d.php?t=196906

    Hi TheAnimus,
    Lovely photo of Kingfisher. I like the idea.
    What camera did you use and what technique you used to shot this photo?

    I'm not, but thanks for the info, I'll definitely give it a read!

    A portrait of my girlfriend from our recent trip to Wales. I have no idea about the "rules" of portrait photography so there may be some improvements I could make.

    I find the nice daffodils a little distracting in the background and would probably have gone for more bokeh. What lens did you take it with and at what settings?

    However I do like the pose and composition

    That's been said a lot over at talkphotography where I've also posted it. I'm not sure if it's my eyes or what, but it looks fine to me, but if you plus quite a few others say it doesn't look right, then I must be doing something wrong! I had no idea about smoothing so I just googled it and used the first result, which was a surface blur.

    Ask htid not the animus, after all htid took the photo in the first place.

    I think it might be a spammer, hence I ignored it

    That's a stunning shot, the sharpness really adds to the eeriness of the churchyard. The cross is an interesting shot, but doesn't really "do it" for me, although I can't put my finger on why

    Re: Photo-a-day

    The crops I like, but the skin looks a little too bright to me, but then my monitor is a cheap 'never been calibrated in its life' dell that's about 8 years old so it probably looks good if I was able to view it as it's meant to be
