I enjoy using Topaz Lab's plug-ins, I have Topaz Adjust, Topaz Detail, etc. I recently purchased Topaz Remask 2 knowing it would come in handy sooner or later...and the sooner is here.
During my recent Iowa eagles trip, the skies were overcast everyday. I didn't see the sun for 6 days (I am looking forward to seeing the sun this week in Iowa during my return trip.)
I have a ton of nice eagle images but the skies in the images are boring....gggg...ggg!
Topaz Remask 2 to the rescue! Topaz Remask is very to use by masking out the eagle in seconds, (cutting out the sky) and then simply dragging in a new sky background via Photoshop.
The new images below are BEFORE and AFTER.
Never fear an overcast day again when shooting eagles! I also "re-positioned" the eagle for a better composition in the AFTER image.
Pretty cool, huh?
