As usual, I left the chip in my reader. I tend to do that and not just at the end of the month. I take it out when I put the next one in. Why? Shall we call it laziness? This particular picture of a Carolina Wren was accidentally taken as an HDR. I don’t do HDR. I sometimes do imitation HDR, but not the real deal. How I wound up shooting in HDR? I clicked the wrong thing in the menu.
So, I did the best I could having zero knowledge of how to do it right. This came out pretty well considering I used the wrong setting and had no idea how to process it. Also, birds are not good subjects for HDR. They are in constant motion, so the shots don’t line up at all. And finally, since the last Microsoft upgrade, I have to reinstall all of my filters because most of them are throwing errors. I’ll get to it. Eventually. Right now, I’m getting a headache thinking about it.
