    Question SONY JPG vs Photoshop Elements

    Today, under overcast skies, I stopped by Winnetka (around 1:15pm) and grabbed a couple shots off the Salt Creek.

    A trio of geese swung by and I snapped a couple of posed shots and a candid. Yeah, as if.

    Here is the standard SONY JPEG and Photshop Element's version with standard sharpening (on the right).

    Attachment 22716
    SONY A100 w/ TAMRON 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di LD
    @ 180mm - f/4.5 - 1/320 sec - ISO-160 - 0 step EC

    I let the SONY A100 Auto-Program take this shot ... as I was literally hanging out of my truck window and not in the mood to fiddle with the controls, mainly due to the fact the light was quite adequate for this and the birds weren't really all that aggresive.

    100% Crop ... sharpening set to 41 - 4.1pixels - 0 levels

    My son says he prefers the unenhanced image better, as I let Elements make its own corrections.

    Personally, I think Photoshop introduced a little too much Cyan in my estimation. Instead of black ... I've got steel blue on the bird's head.

    Basically, I shot this the way a newbie might ... with minimal interference with Photoshop. In effect, what you can expect from the camera on a routine basis.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
