Needed something Pink, something Yellow, better 2 of the same thing than one or something blue with a pond. Roster shots Rock!

Sharpness: make a copy, add more sharpness, compare. If undesirable artifacts appear, it's too much. When in doubt about any edit, it's good to set it aside for a day or so.

Thank you everyone for all of the feedback. The discussion definitely prospered beyond what I thought but thatís ok.

JRMDC - Believe it or not, the quality of the image to me before uploaded onto RP is much higher quality. This has long been an issue with the compression. I did some minor sharpening in Camera Raw via PS to combat the compression, but this was already a very sharp photo (A7R3 + 135L combo.)

I reduced the highlights to bring back some color in the sky, and after some peopleís careful eye caught that blemish on the top right. This was an overnight on my behalf.

Just wanted other opinions about the issue of noise. To me, itís a clean image and despite the notations I left to the screener about the face of the engine being plastered with bugs, they felt otherwise. In PS, looking at the photo with full 42 megapixels you can probably take an exact count as to how many bugs were on the face of the engine..

Looks kind of flat and desaturated. What happened to the bugs? Did they migrate?

Power Washer, but you'd think the engineer would clean the windshield unless it just looks all smeared and glared from this side. I guess I should have just desaturated the ladies "dress".
