Thanks. As Pieter says it's largely due to much improved software, but obviously a sharp lens helps and my 70-200mm is the sharpest I've ever had even with a 2x TC. In the first shot it was taken at nearly 8m [just measured it] and cropped from 8640 > 4495 because I liked the tree it was in. I have now just cropped again in case you were into worms!! and this is 1815 pix. This is where the magic then happens. I put it into Topaz Photo AI where the 'autopilot' scans it. If the shot is a reasonable size it checks for noise and sharpness and adjusts accordingly but in this case it 'thought' 1815 too small and auto upscaled it by a factor of2.34 to give 4247pix, you get an indication that the shot is being 'enhanced' and it's a very rapid process. I then resized to 1024 for Dyxum. Anyway here's the result. The same process was used for the two portraits.



Early morning here but I had breakfast a couple of hours ago otherwise I probably would not have cropped this close
