I was just wondering how you pro's take the super sharp images ?
It seems to me that there are basically 3 levels of images on GG...
soft ( blurry )
OK ( just OK )
SHARP ( no "grain" , POP , clean etc... )
I would say that most of mine are OK , but I have no chance of getting those incredibly crisp details like some on GG
Before you all say to switch to canon to solve my problem , I will say that I HAVE shot a 20D and to me it is looked about the same as my D100
AND assuming most are resized about the same way/size ??
is it a post process like pushing the Unsharp mask farther
-or- settings on the camera ( does adobe RGB or S RGB make much of a difference? )
OR is it some thing as simple as needing to use a faster shutter speed and/or more depth of field ?
Theses 2 images are probably the "sharpest" ones out of the last 500+ I shot
NicoleG was shot at 1/200 at F 2.8 RAW
Kaylia was shot at 1/60 at F 6.7 JPEG / FINE-LARGE
BOTH shot (months apart) with a Nikon D100 and Nikon 28-70 2.8 AF-S lens( handheld off camera SB-800 Flash for fill ) NO tripod
Both of these would have been great pretty much "OUT OF THE CAMERA" although I DID play with one to change it to B&W
