someone wants a 16x20 of this print and I'm looking for some feedback beforehand. I fear that it looks too soft and I've tried to sharpen it up a bit, but, may have some excess noise now. Any comment in that regard? I know it's a bit hard to judge with these lower res views, but, hoping that someone can still offer an opinion.

thanks in advance,

ryan

Hey Ryan, it seems soft on my monitor as well and most of your work posted on your site is superior to this one.

As to whether it is acceptable printed is a decision for you and/or the client.

If I were you I would print a test strip at the resolution you plan on printing it. That way you'll know whether or not the printed version is good enough. Take viewing distance into account as well.

Now that I've started printing a lot more of my images I am stunned at how much better they look in print than they do on screen so it's really hard to judge how it will look without a test.

Use a mask to sharpen the trees and rocks. Don't sharpen the sky or water, and you'll keep your noise down in the sky.
