These were taken with a D3s, Sigma 120-300 with and without 1.4 TC.

Very nice. I'm always jealous of what you get with your 120-300. I had one, but never got this level of sharpness. Were some of these TTF?

Thanks! Something I have done is I have gotten REALLY aggressive in my sharpening technique done in batch with DXO. My settings are USM 500, radius 1.38, and threshold 1.

I got this idea when playing around with topaz detail. Some of the more aggressive pre-sets pulled together some of the soft edges and made the pics pop on pics that were taken wide open with the lens. Playing around in DXO, I was able to come with a batch preset that matches some of the topaz effects. To me it really tightens things up and brings out more detail.

All of these were TTF, but it was through a mesh fence, not chainlink. You can see some of the effects of the fence in the backgrounds where you see unusual patterns in reflective areas or weird lines.
