A nice shot, but oversharpened. It was the crunchy foliage that I first noticed, but look at the halos on the power lines, particularly the diagonal leading to the top left corner.

You’re right, Daniel, and I don’t know why it’s oversharpened. Here’s the original, right out of the camera, with no sharpening at all. It came from a Nikon D2x, several years ago, and I suspect I was shooting .jpeg at the time. It’s still oversharpened.

If you were shooting JPEG, that could explain it. I don’t know what the JPEG recipes for Nikons are called, but a few of the basic details of the corresponding settings for Canon cameras, called “picture styles”, can be found on the web. As you’d expect, they include changes to color balance, saturation, sharpening, etc., all necessarily applied with no regard whatever for the particular scene. So I’d be willing to wager that your SOOC image is highly sharpened–only by the camera, not by you. This seems also to be the case with a few other JPEGs you posted in the forum.
