I like them.  Very sharp without being "crispy".  Thanks for sharing.

I like the lion showing its soft side, appreciating the flowers.

 

Or, maybe, just using them as cover for an ambush....

Not my sharpest image by any means, but I think PL4 works better certainly for web use, yet to master the printing process well !

 

Comments ?

I seem to recall there was talk about a new Ps action that could deal with camera shake in post production. Haven’t had the need to look for it myself (thanks IBIS), but maybe worth looking into, Maurice?

It's not an action but a PS filter .. I'm not sure this image suffers from shake, you can see his left whiskers are sharp .. maybe he was moving  / 1/400th wasn't fast enough / there's not very much DoF at f5/ maybe front focussing a bit at short range ?

 

Where's my book of 1000 photographer's excuses .. 🙃 .. but I'll give it a try !

 

cheers, Maurice

Maurice, this is splendid.  Just love it.  As Mike Gorman used to say "Click up Large".  Hope you have printed it large.
