Also the subject matter. Fine details (high frequency) vs broad areas (low
frequency). Bruce Fraser uses a tree branches and a pumpkin to illustrate
the difference in Real World PS. An image primarily composed of fine details
may want a smaller radius with a high(er) amount, relative to a less
detailed object, which in turn may want a larger radius with a lower amount.
