A Photo a Week Challenge: Sharpness

It seems that the new “thing” in stylish photography these days is a washed-out, über-sharp image. Gritty reality–sort of. It’s still very processed using a photo editing program. It helps overcome some flaws in an image, like some slight blurriness. Here is one image with two different sharp treatments. Let me know which is your favorite.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO THAT YOU’VE SHARPENED.

Treat some of your favorite photos to a sharper image.  Then blog your experiments and post a link to your masterpieces here. Please include your original image as well as your final project.

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.

2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.

3. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.
