CommentI've broken a few rules here (hopefully Georgina Steytler will approve) - focus has been on the bird's eye but most of the rest is out of focus. I have applied a small amount of 'lighten shadows' to the bird's eye. The bird was quite tame and walked right up to me and this is actually an uncropped frame. I'd be interested in any views and suggestions.
EquipmentCanon 80D with EF 100-400mm Mark 2, handheld at 400mm
1/250 sec, f7.1, ISO 500.
Initially processed in Canon DPP 4 to crop, adjust exposure and lighting and perform noise reduction. A 16 bit TIFF file was created from the RAW DPP image and finished in PSE (Adobe Photoshop Elements v9) where further noise reduction was applied to the main subject using Neat Image plugin for PSE. The background was noise reduced and the main subject sharpened.
LocationUrambi Hills Reserve (Australian Capital Territory)
