Yes we know Amherst, been there a few times.Last time saw the signs about the windfarms :(
Extra fee for Sony. Maybe I should sell the Sony kit before I go ;)

I should also mention that there is also a proposed tariff charged on the ferry on photographers from the USA. ;-)a

The Sac. refuge is my favorite spot too. Most of my decent pheasant shots come from there. I even got a great close up of a Bald Eagle there a few years back. I've never seen another bald eagle there since.

Several were there this year. I have better luck on the weekdays when it is not so crowded.

So on the last Greenie shot that I posted, I tried out Topaz Denoise for the first time. I think I have some learning to do with the software, but I really like the ease of use with it.

Today, tried out DPP and the DLO, as I've read that it provides a pretty significant bump in detail (and other stuff), especially when performed on images made with teles + TCs. In this case, I was using the 500 + 2.0xIII.

Overall, I think I like the DPP processed image, as it just seems a little more natural and pleasing to the eye, though it definitely was influenced by the PP I did previously in LR + Topaz.
