We generally praise lenses and photos for being sharp, but sometimes I see shared photos that look way too sharp (beyond natural) to me. Sometimes it's obvious that too much sharpening has been applied (halos appear, for example), but often it just looks "too sharp" to me without being able to point to any tell-tale signs of heavy handed processing. Am I the only one who thinks that? I ask because often photos that I cringe a bit at are praised for their sharpness. I'm thinkinking "harsh" and "unnatural" and people are saying "great shot" and "tack sharp". Not a big deal of course, we can all like the look we like, I'm just curious if my viewpoint is out of whack on this. Maybe looking at my own less-than-tack-sharp shots for so long has convinced me of a false (and low) standard. :smile: Please discuss if interested. Thanks!
