233 – Reaching Up

I took this picture sticking my zoom lens out the cracked window of a car in a drive-through wild animal park, Bearizona in Williams AZ.  I had to shoot into a very bright backlighting situation with the sun behind thin white clouds.  I cropped as much of the sky out as I could and used AutoCorrect in Photoshop Elements to make this more palatable.  I also sharpened with Topaz InFocus because the focus on this is baaaaaad.  Topaz’s claim that it sharpens out of focus pictures without adding extra noise, better than Elements, is crap.  Maybe I need to spend some quality time with their online tutorials and figure out what I’m doing wrong but it doesn’t seem like all that.  But I digress…  Voila!  A black bear, reaching up


175 – Macro Shot

About time to put a picture up with only mild edits, such as this one.  I sharpened it a teensy bit.  That is all.
