    Looking for Lightroom feedback

    I'm a new member to the forum and would like to say hi. I've also got my my first question

    This week I bought a Ricoh Grd and have been trying to find the optimum settings for sharpening and noise reduction in Lightroom using the raw files. Would be grateful if someone could give some feedback on the 2 images i've posted in the gallery with regards to the raw processing. And could you suggest a good starting for the settings in Lightroom for sharpening and noise reduction.
    Thanks, Hugh

    Hi Hugh and welcome!

    While you certainly posted your question in the proper area -- and I hope you get the answers you need -- you may want to ask it in the small sensor section too as many of the GRD users may not regularly check here.

    Cheers,
    Jack

    Re: Looking for Lightroom feedback

    Hi Hugh ,
    I am very new to Lightroom but it is what I use and these are the settings I start with .
    Going from the least to the most .........


    Portrait sharpening :

    Amount 70 85 1.0

    Radius 1.0 1.0 1.0

    Detail 40 50 65

    Masking 90 90 90



    Landscape sharpening :


    Amount 75 90 110

    Radius 1.0 1.0 1.0

    Detail 55 65 90

    Masking 90 90 90

    As for noise reduction I use Noise Ninja If I need to use anything at all .... I would use LightRoom but at the moment I am not sure I have that down quite yet ... also Noise Ninja has a GRD 2 profile you can download off their site that seems to work very well .

    Also you might want to check out here http://learn.adobe.com/wiki/display/LR/Home
    it is a great resource on LightRoom and also you can get some very useful presets for Lightroom ... which is where the above settings come from ... it really has helped me learn this program ...... by looking at the individual settings of some of the presets .....
