About the Image(s)

So I have been having a lot of fun experimenting with Topaz Studio 2. I especially love the Precision Detail filter. It let me bring out the detail of this beautiful bird's feathers. I'm also having lots of fun playing with the textures. The more I explore and play, the more useful tools I find! I wish I had given in and gotten this much sooner.

Maryellen, This is a beautifully rendered image. This would make a nice framed image or I could see people buying card sized versions of this image. I have nothing to add this time.   Posted: 02/07/2021 12:13:45

Maryellen, your playing with Topaz Studio 2 really paid off - this really a stunning portrait! Your cropping is right on and the precision detail filter works to perfection. The reflection of the pintail in the water makes this such an amazing image!

A suggestion I would make is to clone out the white blob above the bird's head but this is a minor point.   Posted: 02/21/2021 10:37:36

This is lovely and converts a nature image into a fine art image. Wonderful!

I would paint or clone out the white blob above the bird's head.   Posted: 02/25/2021 11:30:16

Pintails are one of my favorite ducks, and you've captured a sweet moment. The cool tones are quite nice, and the catch light in the eye really makes the shot perfect.   Posted: 02/27/2021 23:04:12
