American Widgins (and a word about anti-aliasing) Five Photographs

These shots of the bird drying its wings were taken in the fall; the ducks remained throughout the unusually warm weather, well into November. I would like to mention something you might notice in these photos and see in your own. Anti-aliasing filters were on all digital sensors until recently. They reduced moiré (artificially created repetitive patterns or a hazing in existing patterns) and made photographs slightly softer. The removal of the filter generally means sharper photographs (and I think more moiré). Lightroom has an anti-moiré tool, but I haven’t figured it out. Combine the lack of the filter with cropping closer (hence reducing resolution), and you get the slightly painterly effect you see here. To some degree opening shadows too much does the same thing, as there is less detail when applied aggressively.
