Very harsh, posterization etc. Except that was deliberately done aka "artistic" (then I keep my mouth shut),
it basically destroys the beauty of those flowers, except the last one and #2 ... all in my opinion of course.

These are copies of originals which were printed Large on canvas for a client,tifs look a lot better,but always appreciate your comments Klaus.

I agree with Klaus for the most part. I start seeing results like this typically after too much sharpening and too much saturation. Even if they are pics taken of pics, they're showing too much to me. But I must say that I actually like the way your third photo came out -- and I like it because of its desaturated effect.

Great lens, though. Its resolution shines through in several of the pics.

Well, maybe that should have been mentioned then Wink I took it as processing "gone astray" (sorry).
Images printed large format (I do 1000x1000mm at times), need quite some different processing to look
good from the distance...

It wasn't meant to be disrespectful, bare with me please Wink

It is a great lens that you used (I have it, too), hence I had some expectation on the results. It clearly shows.
