Hello all and greetings from Colorado. I am seeking some guidance from any of you that happen to use Aperture and NIK software for your post production work.
To date, I have had EVERY photo submitted rejected, mostly for sharpness. I don't know what I am doing wrong and am in dire need of help.
My equipment and process:
Nikkor 28-300 f/3.5-5.6 VR2
Apple MacBook Pro
NIK Sharpener Pro 3.0
I shoot in RAW (12MB files) at around F/9 and as expected the shots are a bit soft due to shooting in RAW. I then make any exposure/contrast/shadow adjustments within Aperture and then edit with Define and then Sharpener PRO.
