Default A boy and his hat

This is my 8 mos. old. Yes, it is not that sharp. It's hard to get on the floor with babies and get sharp pics! You can't use a tripod. I do have the IS lens, but this one was definitely blurrier than the rest. I did a tiny bit of ps work (taking a ps elements class soon), but not much. Still, he's too cute (then again, I'm biased!), so I couldn't resist posting. Thanks for looking!

that picture just needs a bit of levels i don't think it is a problem of sharpness rather a problem with contrast.....i could be wrong though :/

OK, so it isn't a Puliizer Prize winning National Geographic cover shot. What it is is a priceless picture of your son that you will cherish for years to come! Enjoy it!

Thanks, guys. Hey, Vito...I really like most parts of the pic. Now his clothes seem to stand out from the background, rather than blend in. Nice! The only thing I'm not crazy about is his face. It looks a bit unnatural to me. He is a very fair baby (although his nose looks yellowish in pics!). Wonder how you correct it?

I signed up for 2 2 hr. sessions to learn something about elements. It's individual instruction, so hopefully I'll be able to learn exactly what I need to learn. I'm going to take in a disk of MY pics so we can work from that. BTW, I certainly don't mind you playing around with the pic. It actually helps me to see what someone else has done. Thanks!

Amy

Thats a lovely picture Amy, one to trasure

Re the slight blurring - I downloaded the picture and it just needs a little sharpening, Try this

Use filters, unsharp mask
amount 360
radus 0.5

Then do again filters, unsharp mask
amount 30
radus 50 (thats right fifty the scond time)

and you will see a worthwhile difference.

Beautiful shot!!!!!!
Here's my crack at it. I adjusted levels and contrast on duplicate layer . I sharpened a bit but used layer mask and revealed the face only leaving the eyes sharpened.
