So another long hiatus comes to an end, though this time I managed to do something good in the interim. (Creative writing!) But it’s really true: if you don’t use it, you lose it. So, for the time being, consider this an attempt at not losing it. Also consider it part of a wider attempt to increase my creative, uh, mass: I’ve decided to start publishing non-bug photos at my other (mostly dormant) WordPress site. We’ll see how that goes, but thanks in advance for checking it out.
Meanwhile, we have a photo: it’s one of the first photos I posted to this site. The original rendering showed a lot of ghosting or haloing along the fly’s and flower’s edges. Using different software to process it allowed me to avoid that artifact completely in this newer version. The trade-off (there’s always a trade-off) was that the background became somewhat striated, especially at the darker right side. C’est la vie. Trade-off accounted for, I like this one better.
