Melanie, Is your monitor calibrated?

I didn't add any sharpening, just adjusted the color channels, Urban. But, I agree, it is a bit too contrasty.

Wonderful composition melanie !
And BW is quite appropriate for this.
Ohenry, yes, it is sharpend in an excessive way : u can notice some noise and artifacts appearing : just look at the slanted electric wires.
I would exclude compression role in artifacts appearence cause your shots is 258Kbytes and this is not an overcompressed file for that image size.

brtsergio, I didn't question the oversharpened comment. I just said that I didn't do any sharpening when I played with it. All I did was an extreme contrast addition using the channel mixer. Any noise was already there or complicated as a result of opening and re-saving a jpg file.

LOL Melanie. If you don't know, then your monitor isn't calibrated. It's something you would do yourself. If you have a PC and Adobe Photoshop (or Elements), it came with a program called Adobe Gamma (you'll find it in your Control Panel). There's a similar program for Mac, but I'm not familiar with it.

This is the quick and cheap way to get better color on your monitor. Not the best, but the price is right
