    Another shot taken from my living room. This one is 3 photos stitched together taken vertically (portrait). This was at about 6:00 am, hours before a typhoon hit.....Which is still here

    I'm still losing sharpness when I reduce the size to post here. Any suggestions? Oh and C&C about the photo are welcome too

    I think most of us sharpen again after resizing. Usually I think I do .5 and 20 if I'm in PSP, or 3 and 20 if I'm in NX (I think.) Even then, sometimes it seems like the shot looks softer on the forum than in the resized shot on my computer. I know some hosting sites (flickr) sharpen the photos, maybe DCRP softens them? Anyway, beautiful shot. It has a very dreamy quality to it. I hope you make it through the typhoon okay.

    Planning to add this to my portfolio...B&W conversion done


    18mm, 1/2500, f5.6, ISO100

    zmikers...I do usually sharpen my pictures after resizing so maybe you should do that. Nice shot btw though I'm more curious about those houses among the trees in the lower half of the picture. Got a better picture of those??

    I let Lightroom sharpen my posted photos on export. I sharpen for "screen". This works a lot better than my previous method of using Breeze Browser and making proofs, though I still miss BB for a lot of other things(just switched to Mac).

    Toriaj That's a good tip. Why didn't I think of that? I'll try next time. Cheers! By the way, this typhoon's eye made land fall in Taipei 3 times. It would circle turn away and then circle right back again. Very strange! I have a very wet kitchen floor now but everyone is ok.

    Faisal Cheers for the tip. And those aren't houses, they are actually tombs. Taiwanese do not like living right across from tombs but I don't mind as I know they will never build anything to block my beautiful view. I'll get a close up shot of them when this typhoon finally clears away.

    TenD Lightroom eh? I'll have to give that one a try too. Thanks for the suggestion.

    PS - all of you have posted some very inspiring photos. Thaks for sharing.

    I'm very sorry for the repost here, but I wanted to try out your suggestions. I hope this looks better!

    Edit - Yep, it seems a little sharpening after resizing does the trick. Life savers LOL! Cheers guys.
