Hello all,

I got this pic and really liked it, but the focus landed on her ear rather than her eye. Any suggestions as to how I can fix it? I've tried several attempts at pp, and haven't found any great solutions yet.

Image

Camera: Olympus E-510
Exposure: 0.006 sec (1/160)
Aperture: f/4.5
Focal Length: 50 mm
ISO Speed: 200
Exposure Bias: 0/10 EV
Flash: 8[/img]

Well fixing it as far as getting the eye back into focus will be very difficult i guess, but to get your next shot right, use manual focus or use a single focus point on her eye, then recompose and shoot.

Good luck!

Unfortunately there's not really anything that can be done. :(

Incorrect focus is one of the hardest things to remedy in pp.

I was afraid of that. Thanks to both of you!

It didn't do the magic for me but maybe it's worth a try..
