This image is in the same series as posted earlier https://www.indiawilds.com/forums/showthread.php?19695
The depth of field at 800mm focal length was less. So experimented with slightly moving the focus infront of the eye. The previous image was focused on the eye, so you will see more portions behind the right eye is in focus. In this image by moving the focus to the front of the eye, more of the snout is in focus and shows patterns of the mud on the snout.
I was on an unstable platform and couldn't afford to use a narrow aperture as the slow shutter speed would have made the image soft.
What do you think?
