You’re on a roll, Russ. I like your processing, although there’s a lot of grain in the sky. What software are you using?

I over-sharpened it, Jeremy. No question about it. One problem is that the original is a .jpeg. I shot it in 2002 with an Olympus E-20. I should have backed off the sharpening. I use what’s now DxO’s Nik output sharpener. Easy to control and normally fine results. I probably also should have used Photo Lab’s noise reduction before I sharpened.

I quite like the over-sharpening! It gives the image a rather “technical” or “clinical” feel which is in nice contrast to the actual subject. Having shot with an E-10 for many years, I do appreciate the file being jpg. RAW was just not usable with those bodies unfortunately…

Thanks, Frank. I kind of like it too.

I don’t mind the over sharpening in any of the shots you’ve been posting recently, Russ: in fact, I too rather like the effect it has in this type of black-and-white image. I’m sure the noise in the sky would be tameable, either with PhotoLab (which I don’t know), Topaz or one of the others.
