Beautiful sunset, nice colours but over-sharpened to me. It does have some digital "waste" could be due to resizing...?

You get over digitised looking images if you apply too many filters (like applying a sharpen at 400% for example) or resizing without using a resampling method.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"What did you do to this shot before you posted it up here?

Resized it, then i adjusted the sharpness and messed about with the filter settings on adobe photoshop cs2, but not drastic change only in sharpening!!

Can you post the original? It will make it easier to start with. (Its not easy to remove digital waste). When you resize it, if you are using CS2 make sure you have the bicubic resampling on.

Hi,

In the attached image I have shown (using CS2) the resize image dialog (Image menu then Image Size option). At the bottom of the dialog you should see the check box and the "Resample Image" selection is set to bicubic. Ensure that when you resize you select this.

Also, if you are using CS2 how are you sharpening? That could be a culprit. You should have a look at Smart Sharpen. It does a fab job.

Just thinking about it, why are you sharpening this image at all? Normally you would sharpen something with a lot of detail to really pull it out - this image doesnt really look like it should need sharpening. Try just a resize and see how it looks?
