Really enjoying experimenting with macro work. The best part - when there isn't much time, you can shoot right in your backyard. These images also represent my first experiment with DeNoise from Topaz Labs. So far, very impressed with DeNoise's ability to preserve the detail in fine detail sections like the eyes of the hoverfly, while beautifully smoothing the fine grain in the background. In the past, I've relied on Photoshop, masking and reducing noise in select areas. DeNoise speeds the process and gives a much better look.
