I was asked to redo my Chicago shots by someone based on the fact my editing has come a long way since I originally shot these nearly 3 years ago. I also never did a cohesive series because I was working and editing while I travel for work is difficult because I have work commitments so setting aside time to edit anything more than an image or two is hard.
With this set I am trying a new sharpening technique instead of the usual high pass filter I have been using. With the high pass sharpening I tend to get halos and the introduction of noise into the images. In particular with skies in an image the noise because very pronounced. This technique I recently saw on Fstoppers allows you to sharpen the image but control noise. I then do a final sharpening pass in lab mode to get critical sharpness. For this series I am extremely pleased with the results.
For inquiring minds. These were all shot on an Olympus EM5 with the last image shot on a Panasonic LX7 that I no longer own.
