Visual thoughts by Wouter Brandsma
Wild chervil tries to capture as much light as possible.

Sigma DP1, f5.6, 1/320 sec, ISO 100, +0.7 EV
Really like the contrast on the stalks.
It makes think of animage by one of the large format Masters, Brett Weston or Ansel.
The incisive sharpness, the luscious tonal range, wonderful!
Very sharp (a bit too sharp maybe?!?) and contrasty picture. Like how it is very crisp and almost 3D.
Unbelievable isn’t it. I added no sharpening in Lightroom, and set the sharpening in SPP to -1!!!!! It remains so sharp. Clearly the result of the lens and the larger sensor I think.
I think the sharpening is a result of the missing AA filter the foveon sensor has. Not sure if I like it or if it looks oversharpened since you don’t really have more details there as far as I can see. Very interesting though.
I think you are right and the sharpening is a result of the missing AA filter. At all the photographs of the DP1 I posted no sharpening is applied. You could check my Flickr stream and see the images at larger sizes.
I don’t think AA filters don’t necessary tend to sharpen an images, it makes it less blurry.
