So why is this important to me? Well for all my stock files to get a punchy look I open up the shadow areas and increase the contrast, plus to increase sales potential I upsize the files to 21MP. Now all of this increases noise. So I am asking a lot of the ability of the original raw files to be able to cope with this. As you can see below even by pushing these files to the limit I can still get a good result and all of these files have been accepted by picture libraries.
