Tell me what you think of the post processing on this one. I'm still learning photoshop and noiseware.

Thanks,



Mark

Hard to say because we don't have an original for comparison, but it still looks quite noisy to me. And perhaps it could stand a little more sharpening?

The experts here (not me :-) ) could probably give more detailed advice if you put up specs of your camera and the EXIF data too.

needs to be run through neat image and maybe a little more sharpening on the bird only, very nice shot otherwise:-)

Ok, tried neat image. Of course the maximum file size allowed to upload does have an impact.

Thanks,

Mark

Mark, try selecting the bird as tight as you can with the lasso tool, then inverse the selection and use neat image more strongly on that selection. Click inverse again, then try sharpening just the bird. You may find this works a little better. A lot of times with birds running noise removal software on them takes a lot of detail out of the bird.

Here's an example of this method done quickly.

Here's what I get with a couple minutes spent. Maybe 3 mins. Hehe, looks like compression is adding back the noise I take out...

Edit: duh...saved it to wrong folder and was just reposting original.

I had a little go at it too, I did not want to overdo it
