Shetland Sheep Dog

Shetland Sheep Dog

I salvaged this photo using Rachel Scott-Renouf's crosshatch filter technique. It still had alot of noise so I took it one step further and used the despeckle feature under the noise filter. Thanks, Rachel. If only you would have discovered it 2 weeks ago. LOL.

Nice recovery, Amanda. Are you responsible for brushing the coat? Smile -Brian

Ok, bclapper, you got me there. LOL... What I should have done was put up a before and after, side by side to demonstrate the difference in focus, and the coat though sloppy, would not be so important. To answer your question, no, I did not brush the coat and the dog also had peculiar markings. not to mention the sloppy job I did removing the owner's big feet from beneath the belly of the dog. I shall post a before and after like I should have done in the first place. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. Smile

You misunderstood me. Smile My wife and I are long-time dog owners. As we are well aware, a dog with such a magnificent coat as that one requires frequent brushing (which is one reason we don't have a dog like that!). In an obviously lame attempt at humor, I was asking whether you're the one who's responsible for that chore. Anyway, the before-and-after shot you posted was still a good idea; it dramatically illustrates exactly how much you did recover. Looks like you also cloned out the handler's legs. Very nicely done. As a refinement, you might try feathering the fur a little where you cloned out the legs. I'm adding the rating I neglecting to add the first time through. All that effort demands more than just commentary! -Brian

Thanks for that. I haven't figured out feathering yet. I'll get to it one day, I hope. Thanks again for taking the time to look at my stuff. It's always a pleasure. Smile

Amanda, a little experimenting with the smudge tool and the blur tool can work wonders. I also recommend a $99 (US dollars, that is) Wacom Graphire tablet and pen for retouching. (That's the entry-level Wacom, which is the one I bought; there are better and more expensive models, if you're feeling especially flush). There's nothing quite like a pen for retouching. -Brian

Thanks again. I'll put that on my Christmas wish list. Smile

Amanda, run, do not walk, and get that tablet. It's as important to good ps work as the camera. You'll be simply amazed at how much more exact you can be with it, and cast scornful looks at your mouse forever after. By the way, I'm going to give my comments about this shot on the before/after one.--Chris
