This article features a selection of hawk image rescue attempts that I did in post processing this morning. As regular readers will know I recently added Topaz Denoise AI to my standard post processing approach.
It’s been about 2 weeks since I began experimenting with integrating Topaz AI into my post processing workflow. During this period I’ve had a number of personal emails from readers asking if I’ve decided to keep using DxO PRIME or switch to Topaz Denoise AI.
