Image 1 Hiraloam - With this image, I wanted to sharpen the soft edges of the flower to bring it more into focus, creating more emphasis on that part of the image. Thr textures on the leaves are brought out much more strongly as a result of this filter. Also, the spider web itself also becomes more visible due to the sharpening of the thin lines
Image 2 Conventional - With this image, I wanted to sharpen the water particles in focus, to create a sharper contrast between the blurred sections of the image. I chose to mask out the sharpening in the backround, as it introduced too much noise despite reduction attemps. The water in focus becomes much more visible, creating a lightness throughout.
