Basin Head, Prince Edward Island
I made this image at another one of the fabulous beaches on Prince Edward Island, this one a white sand beach. It was a gorgeous sunset with a full moon and I really liked how the red of the lifeguard’s chair looked against the pink sky.

Wildebeest migrating across the Mara River, Tanzania, Africa.
I’m not sure if anyone understands how the moment of crossing is chosen and by which of the many animals. The anticipation builds as the wildebeest pile up on the edge of the cliff.

HOW I REDUCE NOISE IN MY IMAGES
 
http://annemckinnell.com/2015/06/19/noise-reduction-with-topaz-denoise/
 
In my blog post Noise Reduction with Topaz DeNoise, you can find out more about noise in digital photography and see some examples of how I use Topaz DeNoise to remove it from my images.
 
Topaz DeNoise will analyze your image and reduce noise only in the areas where it is needed. You'll keep all the detail and loose all the noise.
 
More details in the post.

Crested Cranes in Flight at Ngorongoro Crater Tanzania
There are so many large animals that some of the smaller animals take a back seat at first until you start becoming acclimated to the place. Then, it’s the combination of animals that becomes awe inspiring.

City of Rocks State Park New Mexico
It was like a tiny version of the Jumbo Rocks in Joshua Tree, but fascinating because they’re all thrown together with flat prairie all around and lovely rolling hills off in the distance. It’s a wonderful scene to make an image with a lot of depth to it.

Frog Rocks at Cow Head, Newfoundland
Here is another image I made at the remarkable and mysterious Cow Head Beach in Newfoundland. We had so much fun climbing around on the rocks, discovering ponds with creatures, and finding views like no other. This image is high-dynamic range made by combining three exposures.

Noise Reduction with Topaz DeNoise
http://annemckinnell.com/2015/06/19/noise-reduction-with-topaz-denoise/

Topaz Labs has a great deal on their noise reduction plugin, Topaz DeNoise, this month, so I thought this would be a good time to share a bit of information about what noise is and how I get rid of it.

Topaz DeNoise is my favourite tool to use for this purpose because it analyzes your image and reduces noise only the areas where it is needed. You'll keep all the detail and loose all the noise!

Read my full review and see examples of how I reduced the noise on some of my images today on the blog:

Lessons from the Fog
It wasn’t until the fog came and obscured the landscape that the tree showed me it’s beauty.
