Below, the video of my full rebuilding of the background on Photoshop in less than 20 min. Any other adjustments (color, etc.) were done in Aperture app. Note that Photoshop is totally useless for me in 99.9% of the photographs presented on the site; careful not to be blinded by his name… The video is not commented, for any question, I would enjoy to answer you in the comments section of this post.
“Thank you sooooo much, really!” That's what I told to the guard who saw me walking around in the morning, camera and 100-400L in hand; he asked me if I'd seen the frogmouth and made me discover it. Having replied “Frogmouth??? What's that?”, he accompanied me to a clump of thin trees, a few meters […]

One of the first picture made with my new Canon EF 85mm ƒ/1.2L II USM.
Two images of a moth (Psilogramma menephron), one is the result of a stack of multiple photos taken with different focus (focus stack).

Well, after several days of work on my new function Rewind|Forward, I post these two small simple pictures that I was able to post-process very fast. I spent too much time on the back-end of the blog lately, so I wanted to be quick, I hope you will forgive me;-)

From left to right then, the male and the female. I only get on try (3-4 pictures) with this one by chance successful. The ducks group took-off to join the other riverside, far away.
A spider with unusual form “shield”, this species lives in Queensland, Australia. The picture is not exceptional, I didn't want to use an higher ISO than 800 at 1/30th and +1EV (to light-up dark areas), and the environment was not the most stable, the spider web was moving in the slightest air movement. Thank you […]

Background color was a saturated red on original. Too much disturbing for me.
