Why? It's a photo of two backs and a very distracting and partially blown out background. The huge added boarder doesn't frame the photo as it merges with the blown out bits and the colour used is not pleasing to my eye or serves to enhance the experience of the content. I'm sure it would be a fine(-r) photo not worked over so hard. Could you post that for a comparison?
And what what lens did you use (always interesting in a gear oriented thread)?
Testing, .. the more you do, the more you learn. Thanks for the critics, the original is below, as you see it has too many elements, colors are also distracting. Yellow came from the profile itself.
I am testing this microblur technique (the opposite of microcontrast), since too much sharpening can destroy the feeling of something soft. So at the end I smart sharpen images for web, but then add another layer of inverted high pass, to bring back some softness that was there before resize. Especially noticeable with fur, it can look harsh. Also this can help with distracting bokeh, and to enhance spatiality.
There is a thread for postprocessing, but it is way old, why does no one post there anything? Or am I missing something?
I have exif data incorporated. (right click>view image exif data, with mozilla addon).
It is 100MP ZE (sometimes image itself is named with lens details, since I hate generic "322jfbgeei3.jpg" type of names)
