I am going to show you two sets of pictures that was taken just after sunset, utilizing a Nikon D7100, Nikkor 500 mm f/4 plus a 1.7 X converter on a tripod. The settings were 1/100 second,f/5.6 and ISO 3200. As you look at the pictures before the post-processing you will see that there is a large amount of noise and the pictures. After post-processing, utilizing both light room and Photoshop, Topaz Clarity and Detail . I then selected out the backgrounds into a separate layer and utilized DeNoise to decrease the noise. Then I used a technique from Denise Ippolito and Artie Morris using surface blur to finish up the picture.
In the next blog. I will take you step-wise in the process that I use.
