Caught in mid-flight at the Lough, Cork
- Converted from RAW with gimp-ufraw
- Rotated and cropped a much larger image, this is why the extra mega pixels are handy!
- Cleanup with Dcam noise, sharpen with unsharp mask.
- Colour adjustment with colour mixer.
- Resize and unsharp mask again.
- Duplicate Layer. Bottom layer is blurred with a radius of 15 pixels, and brightened significantly.
- Set layer mode of top layer to “Overlay” to give the soft light/starry light effect.
