That explains it then; the other images that you post don't have intrusive sharpening.I quite agree with your observation about the quality of this picture. I took it 5 years ago. Not sure what I did but I may have overdone the sharpening. I would have preferred to return to the RAW file but I no longer have it. I'm more careful these days, or at least try to be. I do like the picture in terms of the composition but I don't think it would survive printing. I'll try a better shot if I ever manage to get back there. Privatebydesign is quite correct. The tourist load is extreme. That's why we haven't returned there since 2015. You can't even get a parking spot and trying to get a clear shot is a nightmare.
Oh, yes! We had a blizzard on the weekend. We got 47cm of snow on Sunday and a tad bit more on Monday. Not light fluffy stuff. Moving it is like moving concrete.
Oh..that is NICE.
