Does this Photo Look Pixelated to You?
Ok, I'm looking for honest opinions and please do be honest.
I've recently sold a print and the client was unhappy stating this:
"but the quality of the printed photo did not meet my expectations. It was very pixelated, and the pixels are obvious even when in a frame and from a few feet away."
I was quite perplexed because it is an uncropped image with minimal post-processing in LR. I followed up with the print lab that I deal with and this is what they said:
"We have reviewed your file. Although the image technically meets our resolution recommendations, we can see some pixelization. You should be able to see it if you look at the file on your end too. The area where we can see the issue most clearly is on the edge of the focus where the outlines of the birds' heads meets the blur of the water. We can clearly see it on the back of the bird's head that is looking left and on the face/beak of the bird that is looking right."
Below is the file I sent them to print.
Am I missing something? Can someone please tell me because I just don't see it.
