Default Red-winged Blackbird NR pt II

I went back and took two other photos shot in the same sequence and the only PP I did was to crop, sharpen a little 35% and slightly boost the saturation. I am wondering if these look any different/better/same than the other shots I posted of this Blackbird? I am going to post them side by side for comparison.

Thanks for putting up with my fussing around with these. Chato started it.



Original post 1st reporcessed photo 2nd.


I don't know, I can't really see any difference. I think it was the flat light myself and it's time to let this go. Cheers

The other shot.

Original then re-processed shot. both taken in the same burst. I did clone out the Cat-tail stem that was cross over the wing. I decided to add one more with a nicer, blue sky background too.

Steve, I noticed a wee bit of loss of detail in the edges, but overall this is fine work. Cheers, Dan

I can't see any EXIF information, so I wonder if you shot this at ISO 400 or above with NR set at "normal?"

Yes, exactly here is a EXIF Summary: 1/400s f/10.0 ISO800 550mm (35mm eq:825mm)
That fact that I was also using a 1.4 TC might account for some of the softness Dan is seeing.
