I would like some recommendations as to how I can achieve a sharper focus for improved detail. Any suggestions most appreciated.
Nice shot Mr McElroy.
I like the refections of the trees on the water surface and the reflection of the duck very much.
Pity there is an out of focus small branch coming from mid right and going to just beneath the reflection of the head of the duck.
That part does distract a little.
It's, as it comes to composition, nicer to have the main subject less centered in the frame.
A lttle more space on the left hand side, the way the duck is facing, and/or a little less space on the right hand side would have been better in this case.
In my opinion nothing is wrong with sharp focus in this image. Only thing is that the image gould use a little more overall sharpness wich can easely be achived by using the unsharp mask tool in Photoshop or any other software made for making improvements to photos.
Hopefully this is a bit helpfull for you.
Warm regards, Harry
