Were those Hot Rod photos taken in Raw or JPG? They are very sharp.
I have found lately that I have to auto sharpen or use USM in PS Elements on almost all of my jpg shots. I have the S6000 set to soft, but I am thinking of going back to normal. Or, is it normal to have to sharpen the majority of jpg shots?
