    So she finally picked the shots she wanted, so with fresh eyes I retouched and processed the images.

    The first is still the best - but I'm getting some jpeg artifacting in it I think

    More likely too much sharpening, I could afford to save high quality being dark black and whites the file size is tiny.

    Why use ANY sharpening?

    It is skin you are shooting - keep it translucent and lustrous.

    I sharpened with the thought that body builders like the look of the skin like that, looking soft makes them look softer which wasn't the edited result.

    Scott,

    I am a big one for the notion that the sitter has no say. You don't buy a dog so that you can bark yourself.

    And to use the medico analogy which seems so popular, the patient would not be telling the doctor what to prescribe.

    My sharpening comment was not just directed at the pics in this thread. A lot of your images look over sharpened to me. Videomania, for instance, is full of artifacts from excessive sharpening.

    I seem to recall that it might have been well nigh impossible to totally turn of in-camera sharpening with my brief interlude with the Panasonic. Maybe 4/3rds image processors deem it essential.

    It is worth looking into I think.

    Cheers,
    Walter Glover
