An interesting subject. I see a number of jpeg artifacts though in the image. Maybe crunched too much for the subject? I see this especially with B+W images where the smooth tones end up with artifacts much more easily than in the colour.
I do like it though.. :)

yes, good observation. this is very much compressed as a fill the frame shot it was humongous. I am noticing that LR6 does not do as good a job making b/ws & jpegs as PS does. However the Canon DPP does a nice job...when I remember to use it! :D

appreciate the comment.

One thing I have in LR is different presets for B+W and Colour. Colour can support greater compression I think (depending on the subject of course) and find that a good way to get around that issue..

Thank you. I will look more into that.
