    An early morning image from the North of Scotland taken as the mist started to disperse. Any thoughts? KenDSC3797-1-cropped-from-laptop-1600-6px-stroke

    Not sure what I’m looking at, but to my tired old eyes it looks like parts of the image, including the trees in the foreground have been artificially and overly sharpened, whereas the rest of the image has been intentionally blurred. Is that intentional?

    Maybe  foreground is a little overshapened, but this renders a painterly effect.

    Overall, a magical landscape  but I don’t see any hobbits.

    Regards,

    Thanks Mike and Dale, the left hand tree has been sharpened over and above my normal capture sharpening to drag your eyes towards it. I processed this image on my laptop and it has a soft screen so I may have overdone the tree sharpening and the output sharpening to compensate. I will have a look on my desktop when I get home. Presently in Scotland hoping to get snow filled landscapes. Ken

    Good luck! Newfoundland is a good place for snow photos at the moment, but not such a good place to be. I didn’t mention it, but I do like the composition and tone of your image.

    Mike.

    I have carefully re-examined this image on my desktop monitor and we will just have to disagree about oversharpening or at least sharpening to the point that it is glaringly obvious. In a previous post I stated that I had increased the sharpening on the left hand tree but in the words of Ms Clinton “I misspoke” no extra sharpening. The original Tiff has no halos or artefacts that I can find and the only boost to shapening/ clarity has been on the background trees which were very soft due to the mist. I have slightly sharpened the reduced size jpeg but no more than any other image posted here. Another case of different people different likes I suppose. Ken

    Truly, I’d like to see the print.  We buy good lenses so we can have sharp.  Bigger sensors so we have more resolution.  I like the image.  I like the sharpness.  Love the feel of the light.
