Before/After: Topaz Sharpen AI

Does it work? Oh yes, it does indeed.

I took this pic of an osprey this morning. It was perched at the top of a dead tree, and suddenly it took off. I was on the wrong setting, with low camera speed, so I got a blurry shot.

But I loved the pose, so I took it into Topaz Sharpen AI. It’s supposed to fix pics that are too soft, too blurry, too noisy… just all around crap photos.

It doesn’t work on everything, but it sure worked on this one. Wow. I removed the shit on its flank and worked the usual magic in other areas, and voila! Impressive, yes?

I’ve got a few other pics for you, too. None of these needed the radical attention the osprey did. 😉

My small lake was visited by an otter, a baby, from the look of it. It was quite small. The morning was overcast, with gray scudding clouds, so getting good shots was difficult.

I like this shot. It was comfortable enough with me being there to roll on its back and stretch like a cat. 🙂

The next day, it showed up again, in full sun. It had just gotten out of the water.

I was able to capture the otter looking at the small ‘gator (floating right over its head, lower right corner) while the white egret kept an eye on both. They were leery of each other, then the otter left the water and the egret flew away. The alligator sighed in contentment. My lake, my fish.

See you next time.
