Waxwing With Berry

By BydoR9  
Bought myself a little Easter present.

I took this shot way back in 2016, but when I viewed it large on my screen at the time, I could see that it was just a smidgen out of focus - just enough for me to dismiss it in favour of the next shot in the sequence that was dead-on, but unfortunately had no berry. I posted that at the time.

So now, five years later, the miracle work that is Topaz AI sharpen has (in a very Easter way) resurrected the shot and made it completely perfect! I am literally amazed! GrinGrinGrinGrin

A great result, Andrew. This is a beautiful bird in a beautiful setting, and the berry in its mouth is a bonus indeed.

Thank you Colin and Dave for your user awards! GrinGrinGrinGrin

I have no affiliation with Topaz, but there is an offer on for AI Sharpen right now, $59.99. Think it's normally $79.99.
