    Is this over sharpened?

    Just wondering if this has been over sharpened?. Any other critique appreciated. Photo taken at a market place where there were some buskers. He was reciting poetry. I used the on camera flash.

    The sharpening adds to this and gives it more oomph, couple of hot spots on the cheek and nose, but a truly wonderful shot shootme...:thumbsup:

    Isn't it a cool thing in nature that the colours never seem to clash...

    Whether it is over sharpened or not depends on what you want.
    For me, I prefer a more natural look but this does bring an emphasis to the character.
    Keep Shooting!

    Re: Is this over sharpened?

    Thank you all so much for your comments, gives me more confidence now to process and post a couple of others. The gentleman was a busker roaming the country to festivals or Sunday markets, reciting poetry. I asked if I could take his photo made a contribution to his kitty and gave him my card should he want some photos which he appreciated as he has a festival in a couple of weeks where they might want a picture for their web site. I said just have the people contact me and I'd be happy to provide some shots.

    Again thanks Jetrim, Frog, Armando, Don and naznomore_92 for your comments.

    Thanks for the feedback, I'm with you on this, thinking yes, but it seems to work. I didn't sharpen as much with my second image.

    I like it too. What a character!
    The hot spots mentioned do not seem to detract significantly.

    Thanks Matt, I actually made them a tad hot on purpose, but I don't think I over did it as you suggest too.
