    I have not posted or done bird photography in months but imaged some birds yesterday and used
    new PP technics I am using now doing Astrophotography, particularly a noise plug Noiseexterminator, developed
    for astro but I used on this. Bad light on purpose to test it.
    60% crop at iso2500

    Lovely water and interesting experiment. I wonder has the NR smoothed detail on the back.
    Just came across this https://petapixel.com/2022/11/26/a-c...rophotography/
    Noiseexterminator rated best for night sky but smoothed ground features too much.

    Lovely low angle view of this lady, Dan. Water is great, and the alter pose sucks us right in. I agree with Colin about the back; it does look a bit smoothed out. I might also give her a bit more room behind if you have it. Perhaps a bit more sharpening on the face as well. I have several frames of males but nothing of females - yet.

    Good stuff already that I won't repeat. I love the water colour, perfectly parallel pose, low-ish angle.
