Clarity, Resolution, Sharpness, Contrast, and Acutance - 4 years ago

Clarity in a photograph is a combination of resolution and acutance. Resolution is the ability of the camera to distinguish between two very close elements in a photo. Acutance is the edge contrast of an image. Once you’ve opened the shutter and made a photograph there is no ability to change the resolution.

    She’s a muse clinging to a chain link fence (She sells sanctuary). Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh. Well, it’s that time: (Sunset in Fitzroy) Always in the twilight (In the night, no control). Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh. No control in so many ways; Nothing standing in its way. (Locked Out): Locked out in so many ways; Always locked out. Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh. Stop saying Oh Oh.

Thank you. I am honoured. That's worth a million times more than an M.B.E. or whatever. The last time they offered me an M.B.E. I asked if there was a cash alternative. I haven't heard from them since.

I love looking at your photos, TLC. Not just as pictures per se, but because they provoke thought and examination. Thanks, mate. I hope your 2023 is a ripper (as we say in these antipodean parts) and that you grasp it with both hands.
