I was wondering if you could point me in the direction of the artifacting on this image.


The file was converted raw in capture NX2. The camera setting were put to minimum.  Cheers.

I see some odd bits of posterization in the thing behind the man (a woman's hair?). To be honest though, I don't think the composition really works that well. The boy and his dad look great - great pose & reaction etc but the background doesn't seem to be busy enough to imply a real convincing space or empty enough to be a usable shot on white background type shot. I find the positioning of the person in the background distracting.

I think it would have been a more usable shot if the dad's face had been in focus too - f/4 only gives a very shallow DOF here and maybe f/5.6 would have been a better choice - assuming there was enough light available.

I agree with Kelvin. In, addition, zoom out a little so that  dad's arms are not cropped.
