Loving the expression.

one thing that would help this shot is a bit of Unsharp mask. With that Olympus E-300 as with all DSLRs the JPGs produced are soft compared to compacts (which is good for noise and PP) but when posting/printing you will get better results with the mask applied.

Hope you don't mind I have attached the result below to let you see what you can get.

Regards,

Mark.

Looks like it could benefit from some noiseware after running the USM. BT style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"W, cool shot.

Thanks,you both have good advice,thanks. This was cropped quite abit from the original shot,and of course ,nervousness,camera shake,andbeing a novice contributed to to pics problems,but I just liked the animal looked at me.

I would not say pic problems, it is more just learing how to make the best of what is already a good camera.
