Great Clarity and Sharpness? How Can I achieve that?
Feb 4, 2014

Hey everyone,

After trying to achieve very sharp and clear images with my D7000 and 18-105mm kit lens, I keep thinking it's something wrong my my camera and lens.

I am comparing to Jared Polin's RAW file from the 1DS and 70-200 lens:

Is the only reason why his picture is so clear is due to the fact that he has a nice lens? I am also planning on buy a few new "L" lens for my Nikon D7000.

I took his RAW, didn't make any adjustments in PP and converted to jpeg. And the details, clarity and sharpness really blew me away. My OCD kicked in and I have always wanted to achieve those results.

Any suggestions in how to get stunning photos like that? I use the same settings, but not nearly the same result.

I have read about in camera settings regarding clarity and sharpness, should I change those? I also have determined that Canon cameras tend to be warmer, should I change those settings in my D7000 too?

Thanks so much for the advice and suggestions!
