Hi Sharp

Some lovely shots of what possibly is the prettiest city around. The colours are pretty spot on but the first shot in the mariena looks a wee bit soft as Greg pointed out.

Cheers

:O :?

Hi harjtt. both of your observations are spot on. I was using the wide end of the sigma 18-125 which is pretty soft on both extreme ends.
it looks better from around 30-100.. the 14 -45 does so much better at 14.

and here's the second. The exposure was good. A few seconds was all it took..

Once sharpened, these look plenty good.

and Versailles....I actually did a slight amount of color adjusting too so it'd look right on my monitor without bothering the dark area in the skythat looks to possibly be where you stitched two images together..

I may have actually oversharpened these files of yours slightly, but the fact is, you've got some very good images that in only a few extra seconds can turned into really nice ones...

I wish the one tower at St. Sulpice was not covered with all that scaffolding, as it was when we were there just 3 1/2 months ago, but it's still a magnificent place.

The main open area at the Trocadero was probablyas close as we got to modern Paris.
