I went looking for Bald Eagles this long weekend and did spot a few.  Some adults were across a large amount of water and 
couldn't get a good shot due to distance and atmospheric perturbations.   I spotted one juvenile close by in a tree in the 
back part of Deer Island which is between Amesbury and Newburyport.  I did not realize I had a huge amount of shmutz on the 
sensor which is usually not a problem in MFT unlike my Sonnie cam.   I think I got most of it off after holding it down 
and turning it off and on a few times and blowing off the sensor with a blower ---but a day late.  A sky image now at F22 looks 
like a  here are still a few tiny tiny things.  I think a blob degraded my shot.  :-(  We also had a few snow 
squalls while chasing the eagles.
Great catch!

More may be done to it. I did a quick 8 bit mess with it, then wandered off . .

Imperfect, but not worth more effort on an already processed JPEG.

...and leaves no trace.

The update feels a little too much to my eyes (personal taste)...

Why does the white blob become a dark blob near the head? Is that a raindrop?

Raindrop on the lens, I believe. That would be the trickiest part of full work. I just toned it down a lot, for quick and dirty.

To me, the original seems more real. Mind you, probably just me... but I do 
like the detail and contrast as it highlights what my eyes cannot see. I might 
try backing off on the opacity a bit.

No disagreement. I would likely be more subtle in a fuller job.

I recently updated ccprofiler (ColorChecker Display Plus) and recalibrated my 
monitors. Images are now a bit more vibrant than before. I notice I have a 
tendency to over do photo processing. The images look great but after my time 
testing method (viewing after some time has passed) often has me reverting to 
slightly more subdued processing.


If you show them to most people, though, their initial impression is to like 
the cooked image.

Grab them eyeballs?

Also, with a good fix for the raindrop, it's a candidate for printing, and 
overcooked on screen is often right printed.
