    Courtyard

    Comments please. First three are jpegs from the camera, fourth is edit of RAW image, losing control during the edit. The stonework looks good, but the tree loses even more detail. focus was on the tree. Suggestions.

    Images shot at f/11, -1ev, multi-segment, ISO 100

    1/8sec, 70mm

    Nice.

    You could try using a high pass filter in ps. It can make trees look busy. You can also try boosting luminosity of magenta in acr and then use an adjustment brush set to darken shadows slightly. This will hopefully boost local contrast and show more detail.

    and reducing yellow and orange will let the blossoms stand out, especially 2 and 3

    Not sure this answers the question, but at such long shutter speeds you would need exceptionally still conditions to keep the tree sharp. The petals on the ground suggest maybe a breeze. Can you recall?

    There was a breeze. I did shoot this one at a slightly faster shutter speed, 1/30sec.
