I think you are right about the over sharpening in version two Ann. For me the original needs very little help to retain its appeal and charm...

Definitely over-sharpened, Ann, V.1 is the definite winner, and a superb reflection. Carol

Gorgeous reflections. My first thought on opening V2, before I read your narrative, was 'Oversharpened'. I really think it is overplayed currently - a friend lent me a magazine that we don't get, with an article on sharpening, and I reckoned the 'improved' version of the picture was anything but!

Great reflections, and a welcome respite from the snow.

V1. Ann is very good; I personally think it is a lovely photo, great reflections, nice colours as well, it has a natural softness to it, good light it's got all you need. I find you can sharpen to the extent the photo becomes hard and harsh there by loosing it's appeal, So V1. it is, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin good luck tomorrow.Wink

A beautiful sylvan setting and as you say that reflection was just begging your attention, Ann.
I feel V 2 is a tad over sharpened, but V 1 is just fine to my eye.

Beautiful reflection, it looks a lovely peaceful place.

Did you download the DNG Converter from the Adobe site. It's free by the way.
My friend uses a new Canon and that's what I recommended he uses for his RAW files, he has no problems now.

I agree about V2, over saturated too, but V1 is a winner.
20 Jan 2013 5:51PM
This is a beautiful shot with that lovely bridge and figure walking across, and that amazing reflection on the water, a superb composition Ann.

Whichever one is chosen, that reflection of the arch is a winner

Beautifully composed, Ann. I like them both. The over-sharpening gives a very effective and stylized look to v2.

An idyllic scene Ann, the reflections are splendid and you've conveyed the sense of tranquility so well. V1 is better as the colours look more natural, they look a tad over saturated in v2
21 Jan 2013 7:55PM
very pretty images

V1 is excellent Ann, especially the reflections. A lovely tranquil scene. Top marks for a first class shot.

A superb reflection Ann and made special with the inclusion of the ladies. Only point I would make is to tone down the greens as they overpower the image or slightly desaturated it as the saturation is too strong and steals the detail that is there

I've noticed that there is a lot of people on this site putting up old pictures from the summer. I think I am right in saying everyone is sick of the winter weather?SadTongue
Anyway this is a superb picture, I'm not keen on V2, but V1 has done the wonderful relection justiceGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
