NR was set at the Lightroom default of 25. It's just a mushy frame is all. I'm going to shoot something specifically for this thread tomorrow so we can pick it apart.
In no way trying pick apart your image, just trying help.
I may be wrong, but I seem to recall that the default vary somewhat depending on how SilkyPix interprets the image. Possibly playing with the different NR settings may help to better that particular image.
Personally, I have used SilkyPix for about 20 months. A few months ago I re-read the manual again. That was an eye opener. I aim to read it again soon, simply there is such wealth of info in there. I can much recommend to anyone to re-read the manual in detail. It is a very good program and definently feels superior to Lightroom to me. Noise is one example where there is alot of different settings.
Looking forward to see more samples from you.
