Toys R Her.

By paulbroad  
Not sure about this one. Had a couple rejected recently from a library for grain/noise from my mouse set. Little choice here as shooting in very low light and in a clandestine fashion - LCD tilted out to get some idea of view. 6400 has caused some loss of detail which cannot be recouped and only a fairly weak smart sharpen possible.

lots of detail here...Barbie & Ken and a few spare Kens?...

Had a little play in `Define2' and then re-sharpened...adds a little detail, brings out her wrinkles!!! Smile

I entirely see Jeff's point about the character in the face - but, given that you always sharpen quite strongly before posting, Paul, I don't think sharpening is the way to go. I op[ted for dodging highlights and burning in shadows. The lady's face isn't well lit, and the lighting overall looks like a nightmare.

But the thing I really had to do was play with hte perspective and angles. I know part of the character of the picture is to do with hte shelves bending and falling apart, sloping and sliding around - but i feel that pulling hte bottom left corner down and the bottom right corner outwards gives a sense of all angles in a world that is still essentially upright.

Interesting comments. I actually don't sharpen at all before submission, John, I use Bycubic sharper in CS3 to reduce image size which does add some sharpening. I thus may overdo it on occasion on the initial image?

My take on it is that you upload images that are sharpened as much as they can take, so that any extra is too much. I won't say they are ever oversharpened: though I'd go as far as saying that I generally sharpen less myself. A matter of taste, to some extent?
