Nice. Which software do you use to clean up the ISO?

Note: I'd hate to run into any Mad Ants.

I use various Photoshop filters and noiseware steps on each color channel to reduce noise while trying to preserve detail, then a final round of filters on the rgb channel. Once I have a recipe that works for a noisy 6400 image, I record that recipe as an action and run it on all files from that point forward, no masking or manual intervention.

That's what I was trying to say. This is the best time to get up there. A day trip from VA. You should be good. Get there early (no later than 7:30 or 8) and plan to stay pretty much until late afternoon. Bring a meal because you don't want to leave because that's when the action happens.

I never thought about inquiring about the gate times and from the amount of photographers I see there, I don't think they do either. They just show up and hope for the best. It's mother nature - no one really knows what will happen. I've see where the gates are open and no action and I've seen when the gates are closed and there's action. I just hope for blue skies, but most time I don't get it. You'd have more luck trying to time the stock market.

You just have to go, just make sure it's not going to rain.

Yup. Very true. Never know what nature will present you (and stock market will take from you... :-) )

Turkey was not on his menu this Thanksgiving Day. Just some unfortunate rodents...

I need to get a grip, and set my focus point a little higher when shooting verticals.

You don't need a grip to set it higher for vertical shots. I use the point where his chin is for verticals. The point is normally expanded to 9 but I lose few points when I put it there but it works for me.

yeah, I know; but the grip is more comfortable shooting verticals! I'll try that upper position this weekend.

Cool. You're doing a great job at it. I've been using Topaz Denoise in LR and it works great for me. The only issue I have with it is I can't run batch processes. I understand it can be done with photoshop CS, but I use LR. I've set a macro on my Razer gaming keyboard to shorten the steps a bit -haha!

Yep. You just have to set a date and go. The folks that have those special images go quite often, which increases their probability of getting the shot. You just gotta go to do that. I may book a hotel and spend the weekend up there, so that I don't have to make the drive and can come and got the entire days I am there.

Do you use a calibrated monitor when processing your photos??

Don't know if it is just me but the photos look a tad too cool or blue to me. Just my preference though.

That point should be fine. I like to point to the body (larger target; less mobile) and not the head (smaller and more mobile target). Just like they say when tackling; don't look at the feet, look at the center mass.

No, I really need to get a calibrator. Part of the process is learning what to look for, which these kinds of tips are very helpful.
