Default Just a simple little fly

Not as sharp as I want, but I hope you will enjoy the picture nevertheless.

Cheers,

Stefan

StefanS, can I get your permission to run my action on this and re-post. Not perfect but it possibly could be with some tweaking in levels.

This action I wrote really does wonders.

lorenww,

please feel free to run some picture processing and repost the picture.
I would be glad to learn your post processing procedure.

I also have this picture in RAW for better processing, but I am still not very familiar with RAW converting.

Cheers,

Stefan

I ran my action 2 times on this. it is pretty blurry in the orig. but my action is highly overdone but you can see that it pulls detail that was totally lost.

after running the action and getting the select, I ran topaz in focus and then unsharp mask, really all you need is unsharp mask to get near the same results.

An action is basically a pre recorded series of, well actions kind of like a macro, hit play and it does a lot of things and you end up with an in focus shot without the normal unsharp artifacts.
