Re: Soft image in print

Looks sharp to me. Yes, if you're doing images for print and computer display you should probably do different versions. If the image starts looking garish on screen that's just about right for print. LOL The other issue is that, since a computer display is emitted light and a print is reflected light, the computer image will always look brighter. Shadow areas are also more prone to block up in the printed image.

Having said that, I'm a little surprised the print was all that soft. Are you sure it's the sharpness? You might try using a gradient filter on the sky and lighten the shadows some so your subjects aren't so dark. Just a thought.

The print technology also matters. Most large prints these days are done using Indigos. Might be different with a different and/or continuous tone technology.
