Wow, what can I say? I've looked at your blended version and I can honestly say I cannot choose between them. They are both amazing!

A little over-sharpened where you can see the distinct halos around the horns; but everything else just beautiful
Congrats on the HC

Tim,I think this is a problem which seems to arise when I save it for the web, I've had this on a few images, doesnt show on original or printing, I never use any sharpening at all.

Hi Phil; just shrinking an image for the web can effectively result in sharpening too - if you're using photoshop, when you're resizing, you have a dropdown with 3 levels you can pick depending how aggressive you want it to be. If you pick the suggested option for shrinking an image it does give these issues along the high contrast edges. To prevent this, pick the method it recommends for enlarging an image(!!), and if you don't mind the extra work, with a layer and a mask you could just apply that version to these already sharp edges.

Thanks for that suggestion Tim, I'll give it a go and see if that sorts my problem.
