After a long recovery period, and learning to walk again, I decided to treat myself to some new kit, so off I went to my local jessops and purchased a Nikon D50 with 18-55 mm lens, Nikon 100-300mm lens, 200x telescope with T-mount, tripod, 1gb media cardand then decided to nick my Dad's Bell and Howel 80-205 mm lens off him to round off the day.

After expermenting with the camera for a few hours, I took a few shots around the house, and one of them was this one.

I kinda like it, so im posting it here to see what you guys think?

Have you got any idea how I can do it?

For once I left the image untouched and just posted it "as is", but your right, that slightly blurred has been nagging at me since I took it.

I didn't get a second chance to get another shot, as my fourteen month old daughter rarely stays still for long.

Any advise you can give me to touching up the blurred eye would be appreciated.

Thanks for your feedback.

Unfortunately not much left to do to this picture, after it's been taken,besides photoshop, but sometimes it can do mirracles. I apply Unsharp Mask Amount 100%, radius 2.1, Threshold 5, and using history brush applied it ONLY to the left eye and eyelashes.

Nest time use slightly smaller aperture (more depth of field) and point your focus point between eyes, when the object isnot looking STRAIGHT to the camera

Good luck!
