I had no darks to use for this image so there is quite a bit of noise. It is my first attempt at processing and used PSE 12. I really had no idea what I was doing ,just wanted to make it look better than original. When I took the image i was using Backyard EOS and thought settings were taken care of,I was wrong.It was set to JPG and saved only in computer anot the camera. Also I think I was in frame and focus mode and not imaging mode. Things that a real noob would do,not looking further into the settings before getting started.
