I’ve been playing with a photoshop plug-in called ReDynamix. I wasn’t too sure about it to begin with. The results were interesting but it created a lot of noise in the process. I have since found a couple ways of reducing the noise created by ReDynamix and I’m very happy with the results.

All of my original images don’t get touched/altered, I import them into Lightroom and export Tiff’s and Jpeg’s to work on. The first way I have found to reduce noise is to export as a 16 bit Tiff. Then in photoshop change the bit amount to 8 bit so the plug-in will work. This saves quite a lot of detail.

These images were done before I came up with the 16bit tiff idea. They only show what detail can be found in images that may look rather poor to begin with. They were all taken during a 3 hour Eco Cruise around the Tasman Peninsula coastline. During this trip I felt rather sea sick due to the fact I was forever taking photos. In other words, I was always looking through the view finder. This had an adverse effect on me. I didn’t feel too good by the end of it but the trip was well worth it!

    Collin, love this! Those rocks look like books stacked in a library and the seal is a crack up!
    George introduced me to Redynamix and I love it, but found that a little goes a long way. Lightroom is my next purchase I think. Thanks for the information!
