Re: The City Sleeper

Excellent shot. I like it.

I agree, I don't think that is masking. (Look at the hair). Possibly a sharpening halo as edgework suggested? changing the radius setting should fix that.

Re: The City Sleeper

Now that you mention it, yes it is a sharpening halo, I had the same happen to an image I edited lately. Unfortunately I made an error and sharpened a full res Tiff file once finished editing, then saved, then resized the image. I applied a light sharpening to the small jpeg, and halos appeared. You can see it here -

Not an important shot anyway, sorry for going a bit off topic, but it is good to see the difference between masks and sharpening side effects.

Re: The City Sleeper

I'd like to hear from the OP on this - that's not a sharpening halo.

I mean yes, I can see the thin sharpening lines, but that's the nature of sharpening. No worries there - like Dave said, you can also see them in the hair and elsewhere.

I'm looking at the broader, softer halos around the leg. It's either some clumsy masking, or clumsy "local contrast enhancement" (that cliched technique using USM at very wide radius).

Either way, it's clumsy, and detracts from the photo IMO.
