Very nicely done!

(Maybe a little oversharpened.)

TCav,

Thanks. Yes, you're right, too much Sharpen Edges. Halos on the paddler. Still have it in Ps. I'll se what I can do. Work, work, work, work. 5% blur tool - zero hardness

Well, any better?

Took away the blues. Left the cyans. She can take it. She's young

Did you do the sharpening in post processing or in the camera?

The oversharpening artifacts are more apparent because of the high contrast. The blur helped with the artifacts, but it didn't eliminate them.

The first is a crop from the first, and the second is a crop from your blurred second.

Yes, thanks, I'd be happy to send the unaltered .jpg (from RAW) to you and see what you can do with it. If you have the time. Tricky exposures interest me. Backlit sceneries is my thing but unfortunately I'm not very good at it. Anyhow - here is a resize of the RAW output, without any sharpening at all.

In-camera sharpening set at default for landscape, I think. With the EF 50 1.8 it's necessary to set it at -1 or even -2 steps

I'm up to my ears right now. My server failed. I got all the data, but I'm setting up the new one (Windows Server 2008 R2 x64), plus the profiles on all my workstations (Macs, Windows XP, Vista, & 7). I jump on here when I'm waiting for something to finish. As much as I'd like to take a crack at that image, I don't know when I'd be able to get to it.

If the oversharpening artifacts show up in the RAW file, perhaps if you didn't crop as much, maybe they wouldn't be so noticeable.
