Re: Why do these A7R shots look so awful?

I enjoy Trey's enthusiasm for photography, but I don't have a lot of experience with his work other than watching his first impression video with the A7/R and seeing something about Google Glass previously. However, I do find it unfortunate that the first image above is a landscape shot and there's not a single pixel sharp in the whole image at f/11. That's really strange to have the result with a super sensor and lens. However, I also understand that A LOT of people love HDR and this is what happens when you process that extensively. I know enough to know you don't just a shot at the pixel level ager this much processing because you're no longer judging the camera or the lens . . . just the composition and the wow factor from software.
