I’ve been so busy that I’m just starting get around to processing photos I took in March! My mom and I snuck away after dinner one evening to go shoot in Pismo Beach. There was a GORGEOUS sunset and we invited our friend Joni to come out and join us with her camera.  I have several photos to share from this lovely evening, but today I want to show you this:

Getting rid of “Ghost Birds”

This photo was shot with my Canon 7D and 24-105 lens (6 sec. at f/22). Six seconds was just long enough for a bird to land in the middle of my shot and move around to create ghost birds.

After making a few adjustments in Lightroom and removing the shadow noise with Topaz DeNoise I pulled up Snapheal Pro by Macphun. It did a great job of removing the “ghost birds”.

I also used Intensify Pro by Macphun to give the image a bit more color and contrast pop. I really love how this image turned out! It would have been unusable with “ghost birds”, but Snapheal Pro saved the day!
