pride event

By taupo
Well, I had a great time today.

This is my first ever attempt at a portrait without the old tripod.

Thanks to all who responded on my thread 'tips on shoooting people' - even though I had some jokey replies.

The image is sharp on my pc and printed but I know sometimes, they don't appear sharp on here.

Good image, Although it looks a tad oversaturated on my calibrated screen......!

Tip re sharpening.

Add whatever level of sharpen you like during work on the full size image.......Then after you have re-sized for upload, Check and re-sharpen the downsized image again....!

Reason for this is, The downsizing process can ( usually does ) take some of the sharpness out, That was applied in the full size version.

How much extra to apply.

Not a lot in most cases, The exact amount can depend on how much was applied to the full size, On average I find an extra 25 to 40% can improve the detail in downsized images......With a radius of 0.8, And the Threshold at 0 (zero).

It's certainly worth trying, HTH......!
