        Forgot to run this through Topaz’ Sharpen app. Can you tell the difference?

        Can you tell what it is?

      After sharpening the noise is worse.

      It shows the edge of a plate of Japanese Fried Tripe.

        Blow up the images to about 200%. I believe that the noise you refer to is actually the grain of the wallboard in the area on the left where the light hits the wall with such an extreme angle that the result is like looking at a bas relief map.

        And… well, it’s not tripe. 🙂

      Well, I can notice only some slight difference in the left part of the image (textured wall), but I don’t think that this sharpen app has improved the image. I actually think it looks pretty good just the way it is.

      Hard to criticize such an abstraction. Maybe only the right part cuts image from the right side. I wonder how it’d look when interrupted before image edge.

      The first version is softer and noisier. The second has less noise and is crisper. Have you tried running denoising software before the sharpening. Looks like sunlight streaming through window treatment onto a wall or ceiling to me.

      That’s right, Rob, I woke up one morning and there it was — sunlight bouncing off the blind on the right and onto the wall on the left.

      Beautiful abstract Greg. The texture on the wall adds to the image. Is there a reason why you chose to shoot at f/32?

      Thanks for the comments, all. Dahlia, I shot this years ago when I was new to manual mode and had only the basic idea of what aperture was. I would not shoot this at f/32 today.

      If anyone didn’t catch it, this is an image of sunlight sort of bleeding out of a blind-covered window and onto a wall.

        I understand that Greg. Thank you for replying 🙂

      Yes, Rob, the light was leaking out sideways between the blind and the wall onto the wall.
