I love the detail in the grass, and the light extending up through the trees!

Just straighten it and it would be perfect!

The photo is neat, but the picture is a little jacked up. It's way too sharp, are you compressing these or cranking up the sharpness?

I was playing around with that one pretty late last night, might have went a tad to much on the saturation. No other adjustments were made. Pic was taken at soldiers field, 30 second exposure.

straightened and desaturated. I really don't like the crop this way. I need to learn to shoot a little wider than my target.

Crap, that's not grass, is it? It almost looks like bamboo.

The shot is even better with more detail.

I think Shad was seeing some compression artifacts because the image was 1/12th the size of the original.

In Photoshop, when you compress an image into JPG and make it smaller...you want to use Bi-cubic Smoother. When you want to make it larger, you use Bi-cubic Sharper.

Those use different algorithms to calculate which pixels to keep (or add) and which to discard in order to size the photo to something other then 1:1 pixel output.

It's in the videos I was telling you about in PM.

Oversharpening (something I'm terrible with because I use Picassa which is a *fixed* setting), often leads to having halos around the edges of objects. I'm not seeing that in the photo.
