My entry for this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge.
Rooftop done right. New York City. I want to explore it so bad!
I took this original shot at 6400 ISO with lots of noise:
And using Topaz DeNoise converted the shot to this:
Topaz DeNoise allows one to get rid of the noise without destroying the clarity of the photograph.
If you click on each of the images they will open in a separate window where you can examine the larger image. I am particularly happy with her whiskers which still maintain their detail, rather than turning into a blurry mess (which is usually what happens with most “remove grain/noise” options in processing software).
As you are aware, I took a brief trip last weekend to Oklahoma. Waiting at the other end were my two brothers and my mother. Only one brother knew I was coming. I was a surprise for Mom and my younger brother. Forty years ago, when I was graduating from high school, we had a formal family portrait taken.
In all the intervening years, for some reason, we’ve never all been in the same place at the same time. Until last weekend.
Here’s one I got of my mom while I was setting up the shot and testing the shutter release. I’m just out of camera to the right, so yeah, it’s me she’s looking at.
Making a wish over her birthday cake.
Lady Liberty from Battery Park. New York City.
