Invited to my cousin's wedding & decided to only take the 70-300 lens as I find the clamber with the iPhone brigade for shots too dangerous now! Long way back & more relaxed shots, such as this one (softened up in PS)

The original was sharper but I softened down in PS.

It looks as if something went wrong in post processing.

Why would anyone in their right mind deliberately soften an image in PP? I want my images as sharp as possible. I add sharpening, I'd never take it away.

Because it wasn't that sharp to begin with? I'm with you though, if it isn't sharp, I don't have any use for it.

A little softening is ok. You have gone way to far on this one.

A little too soft for my taste! Great expression though!

Thanks to all for the feedback, even though I don't agree that I'm not in a right mind.. I must admit it looked better on the small screen of Facebook then it did on here.

I would have gone black and white maybe on this. And you are right about the small screen. These day's everyone is looking at photos mostly on a smaller screen and they always look better there.

I cant tell if its even in focus. Did you soften it bc her skin looked to sharp? You can selectively soften the skin
