Perhaps a little over-sharpened, but I'll see how it up-loads. I'm currently trying to alter some of my processing techniques so sometimes I may go over the edge from time to time. Any comments good or bad welcome.

I really like this too. Definitely my type of image. Is a touch over sharpened but I guess that was only done when you resized for upload and it doesn't detract from the quality of the image Smile

Hi Alan,

Great Image, I love the tones in the wood.

One good sharpening technique for web up-loading you could try is as follows (for printing work use sharpening once the image has been re-sized).

1.Re size to about twice the size of your final up load choice e.g. 800x1200
2. sharpen twice (don't worry that it looks totally over sharpened at this stage).
3. Now re size to your up load size e.g 400x600, you'll be suprised (hopefully)
4 Save for web as this will automatically change your image to 72 dpi

For different images you may need to experiment at stage 2

One final thing if you don't do it already, try not to sharpen water and skies as this creates noise.

Happy processing

Eli

Thanks Eli, I'll definitely have a go at your suggested method of sharpening. I do sharpen selectively already and try not to sharpen anything that I think should remain 'soft'.

Possibly a little over-sharpened (there appears to be a slight white halo around the edge of the wood) but not distractingly so. I love low perspective shots like this, especially when they feature such an appealing foreground object.

Love this one Alan.
The colour is great. The log does look at tad overcooked tbh.
What makes this one for me, is the receeding height of the BG trees - nicely put together indeed sir.
Cheers,
Stu
