Very nice.  Hope you had a nice time. Looks like a "rugged" place to visit.

You should try it in Photoshop, it is not bad. I have saved many an image with photoshop.

OK, sorry for the delay, got busy, had to meet a deadline.


So, the first image is a SIDE BY SIDE of the ORIGINAL on the LEFT and DEFINE cleanup on the RIGHT. The image below it is PHOTOSHOPED.

Although I think the photoshop effort has a little more noise elements, if you look at the eyes and helmet, the image is sharper.

I think, if you know how to use the Noise reduction features in Photoshop, it is slightly better.  Dfine is still a good package.  I think I stated earlier, it just softens the image, which is something I am not crazy about.

Thanks, Bill and Mark.  This little bird is indeed, amazingly colorful. Not quite on the same level as a Cardinal, but the male is fun to photograph.
