Default My beautiful dog

Heya,

Some pics of my dog with my new camera, the Pentax k-x. They were actually taken just seconds apart but look completely different due to me messing with them a little in Lightroom.

I'm still learning... but I think they turned out pretty well.

The second shot is sharper, the first shot did you use 5 points or 11 points AF. It looks like your dog was not focus on correctly as he is offset to the right. And that the 5 point were not enough to cover the offset as they are cluster toward the middle, 11 points may have put him in focus better. As it choose focus point toward the outer parts of the shot.

What were you setting for your shot, the exif data was stripe out of your photos.

Here's a different approach: selected the dog's head (beautiful); changed levels and applied a double micro radius (0.2-0.1) sharpening.
