Hi MoonGypsy,

Both the buildings you have posted are very elegant, but I notice with this one there are quite a lot of jaggies on my screen. I am prone to this too.

Nice shot but, the low resolution required for web posting, really show up in the diagonal lines. Color might help that. I don't know for sure but I suspect desaturating a color image makes it less smooth. However, I could be completely wrong!

Is that in Vancouver. I don't get over there too often. My wife and I were over there last fall and got some nice shots on the North side of the Columbia River and in a downtown park (don't know the name) just West of the freeway. There is an animated bell tower in the park. You probably know what it is.

Cal, the shot is in St.Helens, Oregon. It is the courthouse for Columbia County. I was there Friday as the storm passed through. The park that you mentioned in Vancouver is Ester Short Park.



Canna, I'm not sure why the shot looks jaggedy. I thought it was my funky monitor. :?

I guess itmust what Cal said about diagonals & low res images. Buildings &other things which often have lots of detail on diagonals,must beespecially vulnerable.

I also often use photoshopto try and make right the wrongs of my pix - so at the end I am sometimes making very big files very small. Probably doesn't do them tons of good :sad:.

all best wishes

Canna.

Hi Moon Gypsy,

Yes - I like it, the building looks much warmer and more friendly in colour.I can still see jaggies I'm afraid... Darn thosediagonals!

All best wishes,

Canna.

Hey moongypsy, how are you resizing your images? When I look at this one at 1000% it appears that the jaggies are being exaggerated.

Do you use any version of Photoshop? Is the interpolation set to bicubic? I think you could get much better results.
