Hello my fellow photographer friends,
After some recent rejections, I have looked at my workflow and feel that it is fine. On closer inspection I think that I might have a 'soft' version of my 70-200 f4. I've tried a few test shots and think it's coming out soft, wether it's a focus issue I don't know, compared to other 100% crops I have searched for.
I also regret getting my monitor. It a 19" Dell Ultrasharp, 1280 x 1024 native resolution. Everything looks jagged on my screen, even if it's not. Sharpening is very difficult. One of my recent accpetances was uploaded without sharpening, but others shot under the same condition were rejected for being soft. I know this may be down to focus or blurry issues, but it makes it very hard to determine what needs sharpened and what doesn't.
Can anybody offer any advice? Possibly changing my monitor will help, reduce it 17" at the same res.
Any help appreciated.
