I am getting slightly concerned that my images post CS6 are a bit over processed. I invite your opinion. I like plenty of punch in pictures but please feel free to rate them one to ten or crap to magic.
We have had two trips out today, the wind is wickedly cool and just to add to the joys of spring it’s raining again. I was going to focus stack the moss and lichen growing in the rotting gate post but the tripod wasn’t tall enough.I re-shot the babbling beck. I couldn’t understand why it was so over-sharpened. I process , resize then hit CTRL+SHIFT+5 to flatten then F+5 to sharpen. I must have been giving the odd image a double dose of unsharp mask.
These are taken lying prone in the bog. I was intending to set up for ten or twenty images and stack them. It’s a long job and bog water was seeping slowly through my waterproofs. I decided that discretion was the better part of valour.
There was plenty of wildlife around this morning. Roe Deer and a solitary Red Deer in the distance and a Buzzard glided over. I found a duck egg that had been eaten sometime during the night. I’d like to think a Pine Martin was responsible but it was more likely to have been a weasel.
It was back for breakfast and then out again before the rain came.
That’s all for today. I’ll see what tomorrow brings.
