I think I'm beginning to get the hang of DxO
I took this test shot for a variety of reasons. I wanted difficult light, I was testing out my new Kirk ballhead (fantastic head) and I widened the angle on my tripod to see what the additional stability did for me, and I'm pretty sure that my new Tamron 200-500mm lens has some problems. (It really hunts for focus, I ended up manually focusing.) I then PP'd in DxO, which is still new to me, instead of my usual CaptureNX. Aside from the loss of shadow detail in the left side of the "fixed" capture (I didn't have time to play around with that) I was impressed with how quickly DxO lets you play around.
So, here's the original:
and here is the "fixed" image
I still have a long way to go with it, but I'm beginning to understand it. (Disclaimer: I just buy the software, I have nothing to do with them. I guess I'm a little bit of a software junkie.)
When you meet a dog that talks, express amazement before criticizing its grammar.
