arend

Another beautiful landscape scene, well done

it's worth trying a few different sites as a repository,

if you feel that the display quality is somehow being

reduced.

It's worth noting that a white background page will make

a photo look a bit different to a black background.


I adjusted sharpness and tried imageshack for this result



BTW what equipment are you using?.........musket

Try as I may, I do not see any reason why your image should be any sharper! On the contrary, it has a more mysticquality so and thereforeis fascinating enough

Well, ifsharper look appeals to one's taste more for this particular image, then I think musket's edit proves to be quite a decent one, either

Quite rightly said Bahadir, it's all a mater of taste.

With the main arguement being, why use a 5 or 10 or more

megapixel camera if you are happy with the shots you

can get with a 1 megapixel camera. We've grown to expect

that there should be a difference, mainly that more expensive

equipment captures more details in a scene and we expect

razor sharp images and a more lush and accurate rendition so

as to allow for bigger enlargements and better quality printable

pictures seemingly without the loss of quality. If 'handpainting

mimicry' is all that is wanted from photography, then quite a few

people could save money on their photographic needs by wiser

shopping. I think it's all down to personal taste...........musket

Dear Musket, I have a feeling that you might have offended a bit...!!My consideration about the sharpness issue, was about this particular photo, not sth. in general. So, some 'main argument' youbrought above was completely out of question there. As you may have noticed I appreciated both the original and your edit for different reasons and I have alwaysconsideredone's sharing sincerity inboth praise and criticism as a sign of true respect for the people onemust be caring...

Well, I also sharpen some of my images or leave them as they are, not because of somefashion or non debatable personal taste like 'sharper looksbetter'or 'softer is more beautiful' but some require detail and neatness while others require some moody feel. That'sthe reason why I'm looking for a decent DSLR on those days, as you also know. Btw, I certainly believe in the improvable quality of a personal taste... ah, mine for example:G

Very nice shot arend. This photo seems very sharp to me. the smoothness of the water looks like a time exposure - was it shot on a tripod? I didn't see any exif data. Anyway, it gets my thumbs up.........cheers.......Don
