Comment:Looking right through me.
Whilst in Seisia on a trip to the Tip of Cape York, I found time to hunt some of the Palm Cockatoo which were eating beach almonds in the Caravan park. They were quite tame and allowed me to get quite close in great morning light. Anyone planning a trip to Cape York, this time of year in Seisia is ideal for photographing feeding Palm Cockatoos right in the caravan park.
Equipment:Canon 5D Mark iv
Canon 200-400 f4
iso 100 - 1/1000 - f8 - 400mm - manual exposure - hand held with monopod
Initially processed in Canon DPP 4 to crop, adjust exposure and lighting and perform noise reduction on bird. A 16 bit TIFF file was created from the RAW DPP image and finished in PSE (Adobe Photoshop Elements CC) where the background was noise reduced and the main subject sharpened.
Location:Seisia Caravan Park (Queensland)
