I received my 12x16 prints for a photo show, today, and I am a bit disappointed with how they turned out. I see alot of noise in one image (below) and neither were quite as crisp as I had hoped. They were both a bit 'warmer' than they appear on-screen. This company is 'the' place to get good prints made, so I don't know if I am expecting too much...especially about the color difference. (P.S I just called the shop and they said they would reprint if I came in with proofs :smacks head with hand: ) I was using my Sigma 18-200 lens on the 18mm setting and the AE ISO was 640 for the one below, so I can see where some of the noise came from, but since the image was so big, 3888 x 2592 pixels, I had hoped it wouldn't have been this bad. Would this photo come out better if I had switched to a lower ISO and done a manual exposure? I really am at a disadvantage here, because I view my images almost exclusively on screen--and these two images looked great, so I perhaps I am expecting too much. Should I switch to shooting with RAW instead of the high res JPG? I am not familiar with RAW and it's difference compared to JPG, but I am skilled at image touchup in PhotoPaint, if that is what is called for.
