    I'm not sure if it's the time of year or just me in general, but I'm finding it really hard of late to 'see' photographs within an environment.

    Nobody else was taking this, so I'll have a bash.

    A vignette is, in it's simplest and most common form, a darkening at the edges of a shot. This can be caused by a lens, or can be added in post processing. It's generally undesirable to have a lens with heavy vignetting, as you'll get in on all your shots, whether you like it or not. It can often be a useful tool however to draw peoples focus into the centre of the shot.

    If you use Lightroom, the it's under the Effects tab as post crop Vignetting. I don't know how other programs deal with it.

    These are two pics with a fairly strong vignette.

    Nice, there are loads of Red Kites around my parents' house, but I've never got a picture so close up

    What ISO is the first shot at? Seems a bit grainy in my eyes.
    Also, the second one. :D

    ISO was at 200 - the grain comes from the sharpening filter I applied :D

    Maybe apply a selective sharpening to only the parts in focus next time??

    I would have processed it much more carefully if it was paid work, but alas it's not. ;)

    The second photo was taken at ISO 1600 and the exposure was bumped slightly in PP, so it's going to be grainy anyway.

    I'm in two minds about the hair on her neck, whether it's a distraction, or if it balances the tattoo on her shoulder.
