This article features a number of M.Zuiko 75-300 severe crop images of a sparrow in flight. Photographs were cropped to between 2000 and 2660 pixels on the width. This degree of cropping results in photographs that only utilize between 14.9% and 26.5% of the total number of available pixels on the sensor of my Olympus OM-D E-M1X (i.e. 5184 x 3888) being used for the subject bird.

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. Most also wanted to know if I would be using Topaz Sharpen AI on a regular basis. I’ve finally reached a decision.
On occasion we may happen to be at the right place, at the right time… as was the case with this early morning egret. This article shares a selection of six images from the same AF-C run.

Late August through to mid September is one of the best times in Southern Ontario to photograph the American goldfinch. Our backyard has quite a few plantings of Echinacea, commonly called coneflowers. As a photographer I look forward to these flowers wilting and drying up. Why? American goldfinch like to eat the seeds from these flower heads… thus creating some good opportunities to photograph these skittish, quick birds.
