Default A Walk in the Woods

My lady discovered a new trail near the house, so we took a walk. Kx Tamron 18-250.

That trail looks really nice!

The really like the composition of the photos but something looks off about them. Are they HDR or did you apply something in post? I don't know what it is but they don't look sharp. They almost look like they have a textured effect on them.

I have to agree with sum4142 I like the compositions especially the first and last but I also see a little texture or something

Yeah, I don't see a texture as much on the first one but it still looks soft. Not sure. I'm curious to see the response and see if we can get originals posted, if these are after PP.

No HDR. Just a little levels and sharpening. Maybe the old eyes just aren't seeing things anymore. The Tamron may be giving up the ghost. I've had it for a long time. Here's one with extra sharpening. Better?

Default Over sharpened?

I wonder if the problem is excessive sharpening? Maybe sharpened by pboerger and again by the site after re-sizing?

Can you post the original pic #2 with nothing done to it? I'm just curious.

Some very fine images - lovely scenes and great lines. They do look a bit oversharpened to me too, but this might just be my old eyes. Wonder how the same scenes would look on a cloudier day...
