For the past few weeks I’ve been using the Sharpening brush in Aperture on the subjects of the Bus Stop and Crosswalk shots to make them pop just a bit more from the backgrounds. The effect is subtle, but I think important. Oddly, at the same time I almost never sharpen my HDR images. Yesterday’s post was a change from that practice, and numerous people mentioned how much they liked the sharp detail in the image, so I probably will start using that tool more often again.
