Pretty hot topics here. I think I know what the OP is talking about and I agree with many people who replied. Lens and techniques are important to get the good inputs before PP.

One thing I havent seen mentioned is the resizing techniques. I have seen similar photos with this kind of razor sharp clarity. Obviously similar question was asked, the photographer explained a multiple stage resizing techniques whereby the origninal image is resized slightly smaller each time and sharpen after each resizing. This way, the edges / outlines get progressively sharper as you downsize the image. If you try to downsize this in one stage, then edge / outlines remain "fat" so you canot really get that punchy look. Its a trick for the "pros" it seems.

Implentation wise, this is usually achieved by creating an action in Photoshop where all the stages of resizing is done automatically. I haven't done this myself as I seldom use images of this size, but one of these days I will try it.

This cracks me up. Onona nailed it in the beginning. The OP asked about sharpness. Onona replaied that sharpness is primarily to do with optic quality. This is a completely accurate statement. Aside from preventing flare, light quality does not change sharpness.

That's not to say that sharpness is the only thing that is important. Of course Onona pointed this out. Looks to me like someone is just looking to stir up trouble. Perhaps they need some attention?

Is not about the lens. You can get the same DOF look shooting with a fast lens. It is all about the lighting. She is standing by the a window. A bounce flash off the ceiling was used, maybe using a very low power. F2.8 or faster. High ISO.

But the OP wasn't asking about he DOF, or the light. He was asking, very specifically, about sharpness. And, the lens used is certainly one of the limiting factors with respect to image sharpness.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
