Want to test my new infocus plugin form topaz, and wanted how it would do with the blur in the first shot. I think I over sharpen a little to much.

That looks magnificent, don't mind the oversharpened look it's better than the out of focus.

Gonna download and try

Thanks for showing me this

Tried it and it works great, then went back to LR to see it I could get the same look, and that was possible, did the second heron (and without thinking replaced the top one) and got almost identical results.

The biggest difference is that I have to use the settings in LR in a lot higher range.
Sharpening, amount 66 radius 1.2 detail 30, Noise Reduction 68, detail 43, contrast 0

Now I have to try Topaz infocus on some other (blurred shots), one thing for sure it does work a lot easier with the estimate blur functionality than having to set everything yourself.

Yeah, on more extreme blur it does a better job then aperture. Your shots are very light oof, not a big problem. It is when you get into bad camera shake that infocus takes a larger lead over the aperture or lr.

Agree with mole. Great photos by a great photographer. But, you won't tempt me to buy it as I know half of it is the photographer and I'm not there yet. I'll wait until the price is lower to satisfy that half.
