Yeah. Same. I do general edits in LR then final noise reduction or sharpening in ps via actions. I use masks for selective sharpening and de noise. I usually don't do any noise reduction on my subjects and only the BG, to not lose more detail.

Thanks. I mostly just shoot my kids high school and club soccer. Was thinking I'd see a bit more detail out of the 7d2., closer to my 5d3 than my old 7d. I am getting better focus but still seeing inconsistency in my ai servo shots. tried case 1, 4 and 5. Might try more Saturday. trying to tweak so I can extend not sending in (which I really think I have to do). They play about 20 games and I'd miss about 4 or so if it goes in.

Saturdays soccer. Carroll Dragons - tournament winners! Question for Bird shooters - what's the key to a lot of fine detail?

1. Rooster hair (my freshman daughter)

2. Keeper (my senior daughter)

3. Field player

The key to fine detail is pixels on the duck. In other words, don't over reach with your focal length. This assumes all other exif info set appropriately. Your posted images are low res so nothing we can tell you from them.

So, I went back last night, opened DPP 4 and LR 5.7 side by side, picked a picture and did my thing in both. While they are pretty close, DPP is able to draw a little more out of the file than LR, but enough to make me switch my editing preferences.

I also realized that part of what I am seeing has to do with the upload to SmugMug and their output. I'm losing my colors and sharpness somewhere during the SM upload and not sure where. I've had this problem before and it went away after awhile.

Alot of sites seem to compress images quite a bit. Even 500px I think loses a good bit of sharpness sometimes I'm noticing.
Flickr seems to have the best I've seen so far. Facebook is terrible.

I do my first edits in LR and then finish in PS CC. PS offers so many more tools and allows allot more precision. Plus I can work way faster in PS. PS is so much faster and more responsive than LR for critical edits. I have tried but have never succeeded in getting the same results with LR only. I tend to use LR for its best features and then use PS for its more advanced features. I also use a Wacom Intuos 5 touch. If I had the RAW file and took about 5 minutes I could get it perfect. The shot was a good one it just needed a little help to bring out all the detail because the shooting conditions were less than ideal.

How about Adobe Camera Raw? How would you compare ACR to LR?
I personaly don't like LR so I do all my RAW work in ACR and then in Photoshop CS6.

After seeing some sharpness in some soccer pics I thought I'd try a bird. Please let me know thoughts regarding focus and detail on these 2. I shot in RAW and only converted to Jpeg, then uploaded to Flickr, nothing else. PM me and I can email the jpg file if you wish or do BigFile Transfer for the RAW.

These are very good Steve, the 7DmarkII needs a far bit of sharpening after the raw file is imported
