Here is an ol favorite of mine that troubles me. The original is not sharp. I was in a moving, rocking boat and did the best I could. I am trying the dragan effect here to see if I can make this work. Any feedback is welcome.

The first is the orig, then the post-processed.

Personally, I prefer the original and it looks plenty sharp to me.

I agree. The first one is better. Great capture.

x3 on the original. 2 looks way overprocessed. Good shot tho!

The first could have been sharper, but at least in this size it's plenty sharp enough. I'm not a fan of the processing in the second, so I'd have to say I like the first better. (If I were seeing it in a much larger size, I might have a different opinion...)
