I snuck up on a heron this morning but didn’t get any beaut photos. This is the one I liked the best, but it was full of noise. I tried out the ‘artistic’ options in GIMP2 and settled on this cartoon filter. It turned the graininess into an advantage.

Google told me grain is usually due to the wrong ISO settings or aperture size in low light.

I purchased a photography class years ago, and paid for the upgrade when it went to the next version (at Udemy) but haven’t started it. And, of course, I have my ‘Nikon for Dummies’ book. I still haven’t learned anything. Using the auto function is just too easy.

Thanks for looking.
