I took the liberty of sharpening this shot and you can pull more detail out of it.
If you want to know how I do it, let me know! :)

Well I have a few methods I use but I'm totally open to new ideas, what's your method?

Photoshop: in your layers key in "command J",that will duplicate the background layer, then click on normal and scroll down to "overlay",that will make the image very contrasty looking. Now to to filter at the top menu bar and scroll down to "other" and you will see a sub menu called "highpass", click on that. Now put 1.9 in your radius and click ok. Of course this radius setting is for starters, just play with the setting till your comfortable.
Let me know how it went.


Please share one of your methods.

I've never actually tried the high-pass method but I've read good things, maybe I'll give it a shot. I usually use either unsharp mask, smart sharpen, or the sharpen tool and do it by hand, depending on the image. I generally aim to take shots that don't need much, if any, sharpening, but sometimes it doesn't work out like you plan :P

I've found that high pass is not only simple but more effective than the other sharpening tools.
Good luck to you, and let me know when you revise this shot.

I'm from NY. Never mind, I guess it isn't as common a fantasy as I had thought.

The being left alone in the world fantasy? Reminds me of that Twilight Zone episode, "Well at least I have my books!"

I don't mind solitude but I do enjoy the company of other people. I don't know how happy I'd be long-term.
