    Lovely. I can feel the serenity.

    Lovely. I agree with Paul. A little haloing around the treeline on the left, perhaps?

    Thanks, Jeremy. I’m not sure why there’s haloing above the treeline because I don’t remember sharpening this one.

    But it’s a mystery to me that everyone is an informed critic when it comes to landscape, but nobody has much to say about street, which is the main reason having a camera is worthwhile. When it comes to landscape, a paintbrush seems much more appropriate. I keep coming back to Biersadt’s “Among the Sierra Nevadas,” where the painter wildly distorted linear perspective and ended up with a much more convincing portrayal of the mountains than is remotely possible with a camera (unless you go wild with Photoshop).

    Ah well. . .

    Thanks, Paul. That was the little Palatlakaha river, which was in front of our house before we arrived at the end of the line(Lake Port Square). It was very serene except during hurricanes.

    I don’t think it’s a sharpening artefact. It looks to me more as if you have darkened the sky and the parts of the sky around the treelike haven’t been affected.

    I see what you’re seeing, but I don’t remember doing anything to it, Jeremy, other than correcting the brightness range a bit and then making a 7 inch wide jpeg copy for the web. When I get time I’m going to go back to the .dng copy, or even the original .nef, and see.
