Your welcome Steve, I don't know what you think but to me, sometimes a well focused shot can look 'too real', sounds kinda odd i know.

Not sure about a well focussed shot, but for me the 'too real' experience is the ambivalence I feel when a 2d shot conveys a 3d appearance, I know for a fact it is 2d, but my perception of the shot is 3d. I've never taken such a shot, one day perhaps...

Actually I'm not sure about "well focused" really, I've only had a camera for a short while and most of the settings are still alien to me (something else on my list of things to get round to), you may have a good explanation though, it makes sense. I like the parrot and butterfly image, however, I can't help thinking the butterfly looks superimposed -ish.

I think the superimposed look or isolation of the subject is an effect that a lot of photographers strive for. The butterfly looks superimposed because it's sharpness contrasts with that of the out of focus foliage in the background, this isolation of the subject along with the bright colours and upside down bird all combine for an interesting photo

Had a little time to play with your parrot photo!
Thank you!
Used it to test less than one degree slices with
fanillusion 2 (not quite done yet)...
