Nice, nice and even more nice. Are you using the raynox 1540? Your shots capture great detail.

Thanks! vIZ, yes, I did use the raynox 1540 on the bird pics, but not the butterfly and flower. I also almost always remove noise and sharpen my wildlife and flower shots.

Great shots! Just a question - I just downloaded some programs for sharpening and noise reduction. Does it matter which you do first? Any suggestion?

Thanks. Yes, it's very important to remove noise before sharpening, or you accentuate the noise and will loose more detail when you go to remove it.

Great! Thanks so much for the info. I've been doing it the other way around.

Another tip is to do selective noise removal. What I mean is to use the lasso tool to select a bird or any other main object you want to retain as much detail as possible, the inverse the selection and remove noise more agressive from the rest of the pic, then inverse again and more lightly remove noise from the bird (you can aggessively remove color noise). This will keep more detail in the bird.

Sounds cool! I'm guessing that's using PS, or can you do that in neat image? I really want to get Photo shop, but I'm still stuck with windows ME, and I don't think my computer could handle it.

Thanks again-

Melissa
