That's a nicely focused picture with good depth IMO.

What were your settings ? Did you process the picture in anyway ?

Real nice

Great depth for having App wide open.

Did you use photoshop for the cleanup ?

Thanks although I think its difficult to get shallow DOF with these small sensor cameras. For the noise cleanup i used noiseware professional plugin in photoshop.

That is actually a imitation of P&S cameras. Even at the widest apertures, DoF is not shallow, so if one wants to produce an image where the background is blurred, the only way is to step way back and zoom in on the subject.

I tried noiseware out in my PS and for some reason could not see it doing anything to the picture. I don't know if there was a problem with the plugin or my setting were wrong. I could not see any preview working.

Edited: Ah now I realize I needed to have split view to preview the changes.

It appears the NoiseNinja Plugin is working well

Ah Tullio, what is a limitation turned out real nice in this instance.
