Perfection/Imperfection (Six Photos)

There are three sets of photos here. My preferred photo is the first color one. Unlike the others it has a flaw but one I think can be overlooked, the tip of the nose is out of focus. In the progression from a straight portrait to one with some character and impact, I think the choice is between the two photos where the bird’s head is turned. The more exaggerated of the two has the flaw but as we are drawn to the eye it is probably not something everyone would note. In the digital age, tolerance is lower for soft focus. In the days of film a bit of softening was not as much of a problem – especially as we did not get as many chances to photograph the same subject. Today tack sharp is a “rule”.
