I tried to use only Topaz Studio for natural looking processing and the modules for Clarity, Noise Reduction and Color adjustment worked well and it was nice to have everything in one place. The masking is improving quite a bit, too. I would still like more control over the brush size and shape.
This was shot with a wide angle lens at F 2.0 - I was testing some things and was not planning to be doing closeup work, but fortunately they both ignored me when I was shooting!
This is a painted lady butterfly, with a little bee in the background. I was struck by how much it looked like @Mond’s butterfly.
I have learned that they are very closely related!
