We address the problem of image quality assessment for natural images, focusing on No Reference (NR) assessment methods for sharpness. The metrics proposed in the literature are based on edge pixel measures that significantly suffer the presence of noise. In this work we present an automatic method that selects edge segments, making it possible to evaluate sharpness on more reliable data. To reduce the noise influence, we also propose a new sharpness metric for natural images.
