Re: I Tried a "shootout" with DXO today

Here's the results I was able to obtain. Unfortunately, the image is a little bit soft due to the size of the bird in relationship to the frame, and possibly the focus is off a tiny bit, but you'll notice some parts of the bird are sharper than others to start.

The first image is DXO only with a tiny bit of micro-contrast added only for sharpening. Unfortunately, this adds noise so I used the Deep Prime on standard setting which reduces the noise back to original or a little less.

In the second image, I used Photoshop and added "sharpen more" to the birds body only using a mask and a pixel feather of 3 pixels to bring back more detail where you don't really notice the noise. But that's about all I could squeeze out.
