As a follow on to the images I shot yesterday, I did a comparison set of images this morning.
These were shot as Jpeg, ISO 200, DR 200%, Chrome, - 0.33 EV and with settings of Sharpness - Soft, then Medium and Hard.
Below is the set of images and in the order (descending) Soft, Medium, Hard. The second set of images is the same as the first but with the addition of my own Photoshop sharpening action.
No other post process work of any kind has been done to the images.
Why this scene ? The reason is that I know from prior experience, that foreground smearing can appear in such a scene when shooting Jpeg.
Click on the images for large sizes. Feel free to download and pixel peep.
Same as above but with my own PhotoShop sharpening action applied.
I was also asked about how Tone settings affect the image IQ. Well, below is a comparison shot with the same settings as above, but with Sharpness set to Hard and Tone settings varied, in (descending) order, Hard, Medium, Soft.
